HONOLULU (AP) - The Pledge of Allegiance during the closing session of the Republican National Convention was led by Hawaii's delegate.
The Hawaii Republican Party says Dylan Nonaka led the pledge Thursday in Tampa, Fla., on the same night presidential nominee Mitt Romney was expected to deliver a speech.
The party says Nonaka is a former Marine who was a member of the first American troops to cross into Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
He's also the former executive director of the Hawaii Republican Party.
