Last night, First Lady Laura Bush was one of the featured speakers at the Republican National Convention in New York City and Missouri's 57 delegates had prime seating for the speech. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports from New York City on how Missouri's delegates scored front row seats.
THE MISSOURI DELEGATES ARE CLOSE TO ALL THE ACTION'IF YOU'RE FACING THE STAGE, THEY ARE SITTING TO THE RIGHT OF THE STAGE.
SO, HOW DO THE DELEGATES DESCRIBE THEIR SEATS?
MISSOURI DELEGATE STANLEY COX SAYS THE SEATING ASSIGNMENT IS BETTER THIS YEAR THAN IN 2000.
COX SAYS HE THINKS HE KNOWS WHY MISSOURI RECEIVED FRONT ROW SEATING AT THIS CONVENTION.
AND ANN WAGNER SAYS MISSOURI WILL GET EVEN BETTER SEATING WHEN THE PRESIDENT GIVES HIS SPEECH THURSDAY.
AND SEVERAL DELEGATES SAY PRESIDENT BUSH'S SPEECH WILL BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CONVENTION FOR THEM.
THEY'RE EAGER TO HEAR FROM THE PRESIDENT.
