Dold flew to Tampa Wednesday, joining his sister Katherine, mother Judy and father Robert, who have been here all week.

Dold is running against Democrat Brad Schneider in the 10th Congressional District in Lake County and northern Cook County, one of the most hotly contested races in the country.

He didn't mention his opponent during his speech, but enlisted the delegates to work for Republican votes even after they return to Illinois.

"We have 68 days left. Your job back home is to make sure we're talking to our neighbors. ... This is about do we step forward or do we step backward."
