TAMPA–State Treasurer Dan Rutherford–the chairman of Mitt Romney’s Illinois campaign–will cast the Illinois votes at the roll call Tuesday at the Republican National Convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. I caught up with Rutherford at the convention and asked him for a preview of what he will say when he announces the Illinois votes.

The roll call is Tuesday; Romney officially becomes nominated on Thursday.
