RNC to unveil ‘national debt clock’ at convention

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus will introduce a “national debt clock” when he opens the GOP convention in Tampa Fla. on Monday.

The clock, which will be mounted inside the hall at the Tampa Bay Times forum will be activated at 2 p.m. EDT when the GOP meet convenes and count the growth in the nation’s debt during the convention.

“This clock reminds every delegate and every American why we are here in Tampa – because America can and must do better,” said Priebus in a statement. “Every American’s share of the national debt has increased by approximately $16,000 during the current administration.”
