Quartet of Speakers Revealed for GOP Convention: Bush, Fallin, Paul, Santorum

A view of beautiful downtown Tampa, Florida where Republicans will converge for the GOP National Convention on August 27 - 30, 2012.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus today heralded a second round of speakers to participate in the GOP National Convention August 27-30. Prieubus has stated that the RNC and Romney camp have a great working relationship and are coordinating together to “make a truly memorable and momentous event.”

A notable quartet of speakers: Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, 43rd governor of Florida and current chairman of the Foundation for Florida’s Future; Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, the first woman to serve as both Oklahoma lieutenant governor and governor, and the first woman elected to Congress from Oklahoma since the 1920s; U.S. Senator Rand Paul, junior senator from Kentucky and founder of the U.S. Senate Tea Party Caucus; and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, 2012 presidential primary candidate, U.S. Senator (1995-2007), and U.S. Representative (1991-1995) from Pennsylvania.

I am thrilled to announce Governor Bush, Governor Fallin, Senator Paul and Senator Santorum will address our convention,” said Priebus. “As our party unites around Governor Romney, these four great leaders will lend their voices in support of his vision to get America back on track.”

“Governors Bush and Fallin, and Senators Paul and Santorum are among our party’s most respected leaders, and their participation at the Republican Convention will help generate enthusiasm for Governor Romney’s plans to strengthen our economy,” said convention Chief Executive Officer William Harris.

★ Former Governor Jeb Bush

This election comes down to a fundamental choice - between Mitt Romney’s commitment to business innovation and job growth and the president’s record of government taxation and takeovers. This choice comes at a critical time for our country. We are facing tremendous challenges and our response to them will determine the course of our nation for generations to come. There is a lot at stake for us in November and that is why I am proud to support Governor Mitt Romney as the next president of the United States and I look forward to being a part of his nomination at the Republican National Convention in my home state of Florida,” said Jeb Bush.

★ Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin

The election this November is about much more than politics. It is a decision we have to make about the direction of America - are we going to continue to tax and spend and grow government far past the point of sustainability, or are we going to restore fiscal sanity to Washington, D.C. and force government to live within its means? In Oklahoma, we work to make government serve the people and not the other way around. Our next president has to share this same commitment and that is why I am so proud to be a part of the Republican National Convention to officially nominate Mitt Romney,” said Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin.

★ U.S. Senator Rand Paul

“In the past four years, we have seen the national debt soar at the hands of failed Democrat policies. We are nearing a fiscal cliff and are in desperate need of a change of direction. Whether it is Obamacare, Dodd-Frank or the EPA’s war on coal, American jobs and growth are being stifled by the current policies. I believe Governor Romney would help our country start a new path, where job creators are encouraged not punished, and where the size and scope of government are brought under control. I am honored to speak about our Republican vision for the future at the national convention in Tampa,” said Senator Rand Paul.

★ Former Senator Rick Santorum

I am so passionate about this election because the core principles of our country are at stake. The Republican National Convention is an important time for us to rally behind Mitt Romney and his vision to put our country back on track. We need a leader in the White House who is committed to reforming government. Republicans believe that removing the incentive to work will destroy welfare reform as we know it, costing taxpayers millions and leading the poor to a life of dependency. The contrast between President Obama and Mitt Romney could not be greater. Conservatives from across the country are rallying together and we will make our voices heard in a few weeks in Tampa,” said Senator Rick Santorum.

Governor Romney kicks off a mult-state bus tour this Saturday which will take him to Florida on Monday. He is expected to stop in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Miami.

Stay tuned for additional convention speakers, including the illustrious keynote speaker, to be announced in the coming days!

    Thought you guys would enjoy what this writer for The Washington Post responded to me when I called the BS flag on her headline “Romney tax plan would result in cuts for rich, higher burden for others”
    Notice how in her own words she say “The reason they don’t score “his” plan…”
    yet read her catchy headliner.

    To Koens House

    No, I didn’t miss it. But this caveat doesn’t matter very much. The reason they don’t score “his” plan is because he doesn’t *have* a plan. He has the happy lower-rate part, but not the painful pay-for-it part.

    What TPC concludes is that *any* plan that seeks to lower rates by closing loopholes - but not raising rates on investment income - will cut tax bills for the richest 5 pct and raise them for everyone else. including romney’s.

    But the campaign had a really good comeback, right? They totally explained how TPC was wrong.

    Oh, wait. No, they didn’t.

    This is the link to go to the Tax Policy Center you quoted in your report.

    I guess you missed it when they said and I quote “(We do not score Governor Romney’s plan directly, as certain components of his plan are not specified in sufficient detail, nor do we make assumptions regarding what those components might be.)”

    I am sure getting your facts straight is always an important thing.
