TAMPA - The fences are up, the stage is set, and the candidate is on the way to town.
Now for the delegates of RNC 2012 that came, saw, and want the t-shirt, Angela Gard has it covered.
Angela started Couture That Rox 5 years ago, making Gasparilla shirts. Eventually she started making kids clothes and even trunks for WWE wrestlers. Her designs are a unique glitter and rhinestone embellishment style.
"This is one of my favorite elements to use, the combination of the glitter and rhinestones, because it has a lot more pop appeal than the typical rhinestone designs alone," said Angela.
Last year she approached the RNC about selling her shirts. She eventually ended up with a much larger role.
Not only is she selling her own designs, Angela is in charge of the two stores inside the forum, and all the kiosks selling merchandise at the hotels.
"Its been a huge undertaking. We're looking at 40,000+ shirts, hats, mugs, tote bags. Its a lot of merchandise." said Angela.
