Ann Romney to speak Tuesday, full lineup
After a few schedule switch-ups and a projected near miss with a tropical storm, the Republican National Convention will convene in earnest Tuesday, its roster of speakers slightly rearranged to fit the business of four days into three.
The RNC committee released an official order of business covering the rest of the convention on Monday afternoon. Opening night speakers will still include Ann Romney, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, while some from the original Monday lineup, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) are now slotted for Wednesday.
Gov. Rick Scott appears to have been removed from the lineup entirely, in what may be a nod to his state of Florida remaining in a state of emergency as Isaac approaches.
Romney strategist Russ Schriefer will brief the media Tuesday morning on any additional programming changes.
