A Kansas farm wife tells the Republican National Convention that rural towns not only can be saved, they can thrive.

Carolyn Dunn of St. John said Wednesday evening that "Small-town America continues to be the moral grounding of the country" and that its culture is "worth preserving." Kansas delegates applauded when Dunn said people don't have to move to "the big city" to succeed.

Her speech competed with the buzz of delegates' anticipation of the speech by Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain's vice presidential choice.

Dunn's speech was taken out of Tuesday's lineup as the GOP scrambled to reschedule events in response to Hurricane Gustav's arrival in Louisiana on Monday.

In the past, Dunn worked for Kansas Sens. Sam Brownback, Pat Roberts and Bob Dole.
