The woman who hopes to become the nation's next first lady, Ann Romney, will be the closing speaker on the first night of the Republican National Convention announced on Monday.
There will be two formal sessions for the delegates and alternate delegates next Monday, with the first session commencing at 2 p.m. and the more prestigious night lineup beginning at 7:45 p.m.
ABC News has already announced they won't air any coverage Monday night, instead airing the convention from 10 to 11 p.m. Tuesday thru Thursday evenings. The other broadcast networks haven't announced their schedules yet, but they may also go to only three nights of coverage, since there will be only three nights of coverage for the Democratic National Convention, after party organizers canceled the first day of their event months ago.
Bold-faced names scheduled to address the delegates on opening night include Florida Governor Rick Scott, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Tea Party favorites Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky, and GOP Texas Senate nominee Ted Cruz.
