Florida Congressman Neal Dunn (R-Panama City) visited Tallahassee Wednesday to speak with a group of Republicans about the political climate in Washington.

This week, the deadline passed for new Florida voter registrations ahead of the general election. With less than a month until election day, county elections supervisors are preparing for a high-interest election and a longer-than-usual ballot.

After preparing for the past 18 months, Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho says Florida’s capital county is in full presidential-election mode. He says, in 2008, the county that includes Tallahassee had a record turnout of 86 percent, and that number could very well be surpassed this year.

The Republican National Convention wrapped things up with Mitt Romney accepting the Party’s nomination for president as planned. But Regan McCarthy reports the convention as a whole went off with more than its fair share of stops, starts, and interruptions.

Both Republicans and Democrats are trying to position themselves as THE party for women voters. Democrats are blasting the Republican Party for socially conservative positions on issues such as abortion and birth control. But Republicans are deflecting those claims and trying to put the spotlight on the President’s handling of the economy instead.

“It’s the mom’s who’ve always had to work harder to make things right. And it’s the mom’s—single, married, widowed—who really hold this nation together.”

Ahead of next week’s Republican National Convention, the Party and its presidential front-runner Mitt Romney have made a compromise to allow some delegates who support Texas congressman Ron Paul to have a seat at the nominating table. As Jessica Palombo reports, some Florida Republicans are saying this inclusiveness should be a model for the state Republican Party.
