The support for Mitt Romney from the Arkansas delegation is clear, as all 36 had a hand in voting and naming Romney as the Republican party nominee.
But they'll need more than that once the convention hits the brakes tonight, and experts say this convention is exactly what the party needs moving forward.
And the delegates say they have the Natural State in the big red bag.
"We know in Arkansas that Governor Romney is going to win hands down by 15-25 points, we know that," says Clinton, Ark. delegate Johnny Rhoda. "And across the rest of the nation we expect all the blue states to catch on, wake up and finally realize that the Republican way is the right way of doing things."
That kind of influence can play a large role in the swing of things.
"You see support in Arkansas translating into votes in Ohio, Pennsylvania and some of those swing states, whether it be through dollars, whether it be through energy and volunteering, whatever it might be," says Arkansas political consultant Bill Vickery.
And it was a strong show of support at the end of this convention when Romney took the stage.
