From the floor: Salisbury's Ben Lynch at the RNC | Politics
SALISBURY - Salisbury resident Ben Lynch is attending this week's Republican National Convention in Tampa as a guest. Lynch is the vice chairman of the Rowan Republican party.
"It's a great atmosphere," Lynch told Kent Bernhardt of WSTP Radio during a live call in to the station Wednesday morning. "It absolutely fantastic, a full house. There's been a little bit of rain, maybe heavier wind, overall the weather has not been an issue."
Lynch said he was impressed with the speech given Tuesday night by Ann Romney, the wife of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
"She's a dynamic woman, it was a wonderful message, a positive message for Republicans," Lynch stated.
Lynch is staying at a hotel right outside of Tampa. He had praise for the security that is in place for the convention, and hopes Charlotte can provide the same level of service when the Democratic National Convention opens next week.
"Security is fantastic," Lynch said. " I've never felt so safe in my life. There are security guards on every bus, and some 300 buses to transport folks back to their hotels."
Lynch said he thinks this convention, the first he has ever attended, has been very positive.
"It is a unified camp," Lynch said. "Everybody is working towards one common goal, and that's Republican or Democrats, and that's making a better America."
