Special to the Union Leader

August 28. 2012 10:39PM

TAMPA, Fla. - Day Two of the Republican National Convention began with the New Hampshire delegation being invited to a breakfast put on by the delegates from Pennsylvania.

Guest speakers included House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, and Josh Romney, son of Mitt Romney.

'We have an exceptional country, we are an exceptional people that have done exceptional things, and I don't think President Obama recognizes that,' Romney said. 'My dad recognizes that this is the greatest country that ever existed.'

The convention convened at 2 p.m. with a roll call vote for both the vice presidential nomination, and party nomination for President. The state of New Hampshire voted for Mitt Romney with nine delegate votes. Ron Paul received three.

The New Hampshire Union Leader will feature occasional stories from the Republican National Convention from students of Franklin Pierce University's Fitzwater Center Pierce Media Group.
