As the world’s media focus on the Democratic Convention in Denver, Republicans have set up an outpost called the 'war room', in a discreet building less than a mile away. In it they scrutinise [Democrat] Barack Obama's every move.
A discreet and well guarded building, less than a mile away from the Democratic Convention, houses the Republican headquarters during the event. The Republicans call it the “war room,” and use the outpost to observe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s every move.
"We’re in communication with the reporters that are covering the event and we try to keep them informed on discrepancies," says Republican spokesman Tucker Bounds.
The Republican “war room” has its own TV studio with satellite transmission to broadcast press briefings. Former presidential hopefuls Rudolph Giuliani and Mitt Romney are expected to make appearances here.
The “war room” gives the Republicans an opportunity to counter Obama's statements, and make their viewpoint known.
