Bus snafu that happened Tuesday night after the end of the opening night of the convention had delegates, guests, "honorary delegates," workers, and journalists grumbling over why the GOP couldn't maker the buses run on time.
The scene outside following Gov. Chris Christie's closing speech in the Tampa Bay Times Forum was somewhat chaotic, with people milling around between idling buses. People with the Ohio delegation finished returning to the Mainsail Suites Hotel - 9 miles away - as late as 2 a.m.
The mess was an ironic contrast with the content of the speeches inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum - that the GOP is the party that can make things work right.
Ohio Party Chairman Bob Bennett apologized at the party's daily breakfast meeting and promised it wouldn't happen again.
"I'm really surprised to see the number of people in the room after your bus ride last night," Bennett said in kicking off the morning program. He called it "a complete foul-up" by the Republican
National Committee and whoever was in charge of the transportation arrangements.
Here's a look at the morning schedule of speakers for the Ohio delegates to the Republican National Convention.
