WICHITA, Kan.(AP) _ A Kansas farm wife didn't get to speak as
scheduled at the Republican National Convention.
Carolyn Dunn of St. John tells The Wichita Eagle that it was a
convention decision to take her speech out of Tuesday's lineup. The
37-year-old Dunn said it's unclear whether her four-minute talk
will be rescheduled.
Dunn said she did a walkthrough on Monday that included the use
of a TelePrompTer for the first time, an experience she admitted
was ``a little intimidating.''
In the past, Dunn worked in various capacities with Kansas Sens.
Sam Brownback, Pat Roberts and Bob Dole.
She had planned to talk about repopulating rural areas,
encouraging people to keep their wealth in rural towns and
retaining young people, a message Dunn said has been endorsed by
Sen. John McCain's policy team.
