Romney to arrive Tuesday in Tampa

Mitt Romney will be in Tampa on Tuesday when his wife, Ann Romney, is scheduled to address the Republican National Convention.

Romney’s trip also comes on the day that Republican delegates will officially elect him as the party's presidential nominee.

Romney is still slated to be Indianapolis for remarks to the American Legion on Wednesday, before returning to Tampa on Thursday to accept his party's nomination.
