Hello from the Republican National Convention!

Hello from the Republican National Convention!


Here we are in sunny (yes, sunny!) Tampa for the Republican National Conventions! I’m Nona, and I’ll Marie Claire's political blogger from now until the elections. Most recently, I was writing on politics and culture for GOOD magazine, and the last time I was in Florida, I was hard at work on a 2010 midterm elections series for public radio. Judging by our first few minutes, it looks like the RNC is officially in full swing—Isaac-sized storm be damned.

I’ll be posting here a couple times a day reporting on relevant business, lady- or otherwise. We have the luxury of ignoring the RNC horserace, which means I get to wander off and discover any intriguing sideshows, protests, or characters. And I plan on sampling the, ahem, after-hours entertainment made famous by a certain Channing Tatum vehicle. Also, I’m a convention virgin, so you may get a wide-eyed post or two about the sheer craziness of this political circus.

We’ll be Instagramming from @marieclairemag, and I’ll be tweeting compulsively at @NonaWA—so feel free to follow along there, too!
