JACKSON, Miss.--Mississippi's governor and delegates are either on their way to Florida, or will be getting there by Monday for the beginning of the Republican National Convention.
Gov. Phil Bryant spoke with us about his expected duties.
"I'll be doing some surrogate speaking to other states and their delegates and again I'll be on the floor announcing the delegate votes for the State of Mississippi," he said.
Bryant is a staunch Romney supporter, having thrown his endorsement behind the Massachusettes governor earlier in the year and having stumped for the nominee on campaign stops throughout the country. Bryant said Romney's campaign is paying for those stops.
While Romney didn't win Mississippi in the primaries, he has since gotten the support of many Republican leaders from the state. Still, some are expected to rally for long-defeated Texas Congressman Ron Paul. U.S. Congressman Gregg Harper told us he believes Paul's speech will reflect support for Romney.
"I don't believe they would give him the mic unless he was going to throw his support behind Romney there," said Harper.
News Mississippi will have correspondents at the convention next week and will have frequent updates.
