Second District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers stopped in the Google Lounge at the Tampa Bay Convention Center Thursday for a live video chat with GOP supporters back home.
It was the second best way – not quite face-to-face – to fill in North Carolina Republican volunteers about all the convention action, Ellmers said.
"That was really fun. I had done the Skype deal before, but the way they did this was excellent," she said.
The Google setup allowed Ellmers to see and address different people in different locations all in one connected video chat session.
She said voters back home really want to know what they'll hear from Mitt Romney Thursday night.
"This has been the big lead-up. Paul Ryan did a great job last night talking about the plan for the future. Now, Mitt Romney needs to take it a step further and show the American people how he is going to be a leader," she said. "He's been a leader in the past. He's been very successful in the past, but what is he going to do as president?"
