WAUKESHA- Wisconsin Republicans who couldn't make it to Tampa for the Republican National Convention rallied in support of their nominee.
Some people gather to watch football games. Others -- to watch big political speeches.
On Thursday night, Mitt Romney's speech drew his fans to one big Republican party.
Romney supporters saw his speech as an opportunity -- a way to win over those who don't know, or don't like, the Republican candidate for president.
"He is think uniquely qualified for the situation we have right now," said Tony Mennenga.
Tony Mennenga was one of almost 100 people gathered at the Waukesha Victory Center to watch Romney speak. Not quite as large as the crowd that watched Paul Ryan's speech on Wednesday.
But they are just as committed to the message Romney delivered Wednesday night.
"What a man of character and integrity and great business sense. What more could you want?" said Annette Kuglitsch.
Wisconsin hasn't gone Republican in a presidential election since 1984. With Paul Ryan in the race, and some polling showing President Obama's lead over Mitt Romney shrinking -- the Badger State is now a battleground.
