Color Coordinated Delegations Put on a Show
By Ed O'Keefe
ST. PAUL -- Many observers consider the Republican National Convention better coordinated than its Democratic counterpart.
Today some state delegations took the coordination a step further by wearing matching outfits.
Texas delegates have donned long-sleeved blue denim shirts with Gov. Rick Perry's "Rockin' R" logo on them and white cowboy hats from Cavender's Boot City store. Tomorrow they will wear short-sleeved red polo shirts, then blue blazers on Wednesday and long-sleeved button-down Texas state flag shirts on Thursday.
Florida delegates also look festive today, wearing the short-sleeved Hawaiian-style button-down shirts worn by Florida Turnpike toll collectors (no plans for Sunshine State uniforms the rest of the week).
Oklahoma Republicans can be seen in short-sleeved red polo shirts with the "Oklahoma Republican Party" logo. Montanans may wear their blue denim Wrangler vests with the "Montana GOP" logo all week long, according to a delegate. Both the Colorado and New Mexico delegations are wearing dark blue short-sleeved polos with their state party logos.
