DENVER, CO The GOP effort includes a "war room" and media center less
than a mile from the convention hall. It will be making top
Republicans such as Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney available for
press conferences and satellite interviews. A key target is local
media in swing states.
The message is that Barack Obama is a celebrity not qualified
for the White House.
As a senior McCain campaign adviser puts it: "you can't expect
people to cover you if you don't show up."
With thousands of reporters in Denver, Republicans anticipate
plenty of demand for an alternative to the carefully choreographed
narrative from the Democrats.
**During the Democratic National Convention, Tom Abrahams and Miya Shay will be blogging from Denver. You can see their reports all week here on abc13.com and on Eyewitness News.
