Delegates will find a few changes when they step inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum for the final night of the Republican National Convention here in Tampa. The stage has been expanded for Mitt Romney's acceptance speech. The larger stage takes up a bit more floor space and shifts the seating area for some state delegations.
For instance, Pennsylvania has moved from the center of the arena's floor to stage left, directly behind New Jersey.
This isn't the first time Republicans have altered their stage on the final night of their convention. In 2004, George W. Bush accepted his party's nomination for a second term on a large presidential seal in the center of Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Democrats seem to favor even bigger change on the final night of their conventions. Barack Obama delivered his acceptance speech in an outdoor stadium in Denver in 2008. He's scheduled to do the same next week in Charlotte, although inclement weather is a growing concern.
