Will Romney make Tuesday convention appearance?

With late-breaking news Monday evening that Republican presidential soon-to-be nominee Mitt Romney would be in Tampa Tuesday ahead of his Thursday nomination at the Republican National Convention, officials have been tight-lipped about whether Romney plans to pay a visit to the convention Tuesday as well.

Ann Romney, along with New Jersey governor and fast-rising Republican superstar Chris Christie, will headline tonight’s speeches, which will all revolve around the theme “we built it,” organizers said this morning.

But whether Romney will come to sit in on his wife’s speech isn’t something convention organizers will speculate on.

“Anything could happen,” Romney strategist Russ Schriefer said this morning in response to a question from Human Events.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who also spoke with reporters this morning via a conference call, was more definite about the day’s business, which will include a tallying of delegates. While speculation has abounded that factions of delegates in support of Libertarian-leaning Republican candidate Ron Paul or grassroots Republican candidates could split the nomination, a late rule change was enacted to keep order. Priebus left no doubt that he believed Romney would secure the 1144 delegates he needed for the nomination.

“Mitt Romney will secure enough delegates today to secure the nomination,” he said. “I can’t tell you how much we’re looking to getting on with the business of making sure that we can provide a better future.”

The convention’s first business session kicks off at 2p.m. while keynote speeches begin at 7p.m.
