Alli Hall on the bus to the convention.
Youth Journalism International is happy and proud to introduce our newest reporter, 15-year-old Alli Hall from Duluth, Minnesota, U.S.A.
She's attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. It's her first time at a national convention, and she says she's "very excited to see what's in store."
The convention will open Monday, but immediately adjourn for the day because of the oncoming hurricane. It is scheduled to open again on Tuesday. Allie's mom is an alternate delegate from Minnesota.
During the convention, the party is expected to select former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as its candidate for U.S. president.
Please check back for Alli's reports.
