Awww:

Bradley Thompson, a production manager at the Republican National Convention here in Tampa, took the opportunity this morning to propose to his girlfriend, Laura Bowman. He popped the question right in front of the big on-stage screen — on which were the words "Laura Bowman, will you marry me" and some lovely photos.

From the kiss he got in return, it appears she said yes.

Convention organizers officially offered their congratulations on Twitter. We like the spirit of this tweet better, though:

"Some dude just proposed on the convention stage. Jack Johnson on the PA." (@Timodc).

The stage was available because the program doesn't get going to day until 7 p.m. ET.
