TAMPA — The Illinois delegation got a surprise visit on the floor of the GOP Convention hall just minutes after voting unanimously to give Mitt Romney the GOP presidential nomination.
An Abraham Lincoln lookalike was glad-handing the crowd of delegates.
Turns out it was George Engelbach, a delegate from Missouri, wearing the black top hat and Lincoln-like beard. He easily drew smiles and had many a request for photos.
“I’ve been doing this for the last few conventions,” Engelbach, says laughing.
