Convention organizers put out a revised scheduled Monday morning that showed RNC chairman Reince Priebus formally gaveling the meeting to order at 2 p.m., and then announcing a recess 10 minutes later.
That will leave a lot of media outlets looking for something to cover -- there have already been numerous stories about the increased traffic at strip clubs and the Sarah Palin lookalike.
According to Republican National Convention organizers, representatives of media outlets will outnumber convention delegates by more than 3 to 1 at this week's convention in Tampa.
According to the committee website, there are 15,000 accredited members of the media attending the convention. The combined number of convention delegates (2,286) and alternate delegates (2,125) is only 4,411.
