GOP convention to be covered by Heritage Foundation intern for CNN

Summer 2012 Heritage Foundation intern Alex Anderson is joining the ranks of CNN iReporters to cover the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week.

Anderson, a broadcast journalism junior at Hillsdale College, was one of three chosen to cover the GOP convention in a CNN contest that brought in more than 200 entries.
