Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. The Republican convention sent Mitt Romney into the fall campaign on a high note, thanks to Romney's strong acceptance speech, a diverse tableau of speakers and a fractious party unified in its goal of defeating President Barack Obama. But the convention likely won't provide a lasting boost for the Republican ticket, thanks to Hurricane Isaac, some high-profile speech flops and continued questions over how the party would tackle issues like Medicare and spending cuts.
