TAMPA, Fla. — Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, and liberal contraception activist Sandra Fluke crashed the Republican National Convention on Thursday, the day Mitt Romney will give his speech officially accepting the GOP’s presidential nomination.

As of 1:30 p.m. EST, Fluke and Wasserman Schultz have been strolling through the convention center doing media appearances. Both were spotted on Radio Row, an area where noted convention figures go to make multiple subsequent radio appearances. Wasserman Schultz then visited an area downstairs in the convention center where several reporters are working.

Fluke has endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election and has campaigned with him around the country. She is expected to be a featured speaker at next week’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

An RNC spokesperson told The Daily Caller they had “no comment” on Wasserman Schultz and Fluke crashing the GOP convention.

UPDATE: Wasserman Schultz tells reporters that female speakers at the RNC are just “shiny packaging.”
