While Mitt Romney was clearly the main event at this week's convention, the rise of stars like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan convinced many delegates the GOP has finally left behind the party of the past decade, now so closely identified with runaway federal spending and foreign interventionism.
"I thought Susana Martinez was phenomenal — I had never heard her speak before," said Tara Howey, 51, a lobbyist from Pittsburgh. "Being a woman, having a strong woman in the Republican Party is long overdue."
Speaking about a representative of a different generation, she said she was "almost embarrassed" for Arizona Sen. John McCain, who turned 76 Wednesday and devoted much of his 15-minute address championing a hawkish U.S. foreign policy.
