Republicans danced on their convention floor in delight at the conclusion of Paul Ryan's speech. As the vice presidential candidate neared the end of his speech, his voice rising, many in the crowd burst into a placard-waving, dancing-in-the-aisles burst of exuberance.
Even a few beach balls appeared, bopped around the crowd, as Ryan and his family waved on stage. The Wisconsin congressman is a favorite among the party faithful and especially conservatives.
