RNC Convention Speakers Feature Rice, Martinez, Haley in Star-Studded Lineup

Sounds like fun already ... the Tampa Bay Times released the names of some of the speakers slated for the RNC convention in Tampa later this month, and it looks to be a promising lineup. The Times reported that, as of now, it's unclear where these speakers are slotted, and the rest of the lineup--including the keynote speaker--remains unknown. Names so far include conservative powerhouses New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is also speaking.

Here's a portion of the Times report:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. John McCain and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are among seven headline speakers announced today for the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

The first look at featured speakers also includes South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.

The keynote speaker and others will be named closer to the Aug. 27-30 event, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said in announcing the headliners, whom he called "some of our party's brightest stars, who have governed and led effectively and admirably in their respective roles."

So far, the lineup looks off to a fairly good start. Conservatives will definitely be represented well--both socially, with the inclusion of Mike Huckabee, and practically, with competent and current gubernatorial voices like Martinez and Haley--and Rice remains a popular figure in the GOP.

If Gov. Palin is blacklisted from speaking, I swear I will NOT vote for Romney.

If that causes Obama to be re-elected, it's Romney's fault, not mine.

Scott, Martinez and Kasich are the only worthwhile speakers. The rest are moderate or liberal at best....no surprise coming from liberal Romney.

Conspicuously absent thus far are the most widely-supported Conservatives. RNC seems determined to stick it to the TEA Party. They’d better hope the feeling isn’t mutual.

The gop/e’s attack on Conservatives is getting hard to deny for even the most rabid gop supporters.
