Local TV and radio cover the protest by 100 pro-life activists outside the Marriott hotel where the convention is being held. Joe tells reporters, “We’re here to show the American people what we do 5,000 times a day. It’s a holocaust.” USA Today reports the convention has very tight security because Joe and Andy are in town.
