On Tuesday evening's "Real News on TheBlaze TV, hosts Will Cain and S.E. Cupp will be interviewing Congressman Jason Chaffetz to get his take on the Republican National Convention. The two Blaze contributors also gave a sneak peek of what's in store when they caught up with the congressman earlier in the day during their daily convention radio program on SIRIUS XM, which airs from 11:00 - 12:00 p.m. ET.

Below is audio of the interview in which Chaffetz discusses how conventions are an opportunity for the public to truly focus on the election but that he thinks shortening the length by a day or two might be prove more efficient moving forward.

"We don't need four days of this, plus meetings for rules committee," he told Cain and Cupp before explaining that "two or three days" would be plenty of time to give the country a good sense of the political landscape where candidates are concerned. The trio also shared their thoughts on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's upcoming keynote speech and tried to anticipate what the outspoken Republican might say.

Chaffetz noted that Christie's "brash east coast" personality electrifies audiences and projected what it would be like of the non-nonsense governor were to become the U.S. Attorney General.

The Utah congressman also relayed a story of how he and Romney bonded over the respective loss of each of their fathers and said that at the end of the day he finds the GOP nominee to be a sincere "man of integrity" who is bright enough to "turn things around." He added that tapping Paul Ryan as the vice presidential nominee points to Romney's seriousness.

At one point, Cain asked Chaffetz why the more personal side of Romney is masked from public view, to which the congressman replied that he believes the public will get to see that side of Romney when the time is right. In the interim, he noted that Ann Romney will be the lens through which the Republican presidential contender's softer side is viewed through.
