The schedule and theme for the final night of the Republican National has been revealed. The quadrennial celebration of party principles will culminate with an introduction of Mitt Romney, the Party’s presidential nominee, by Freshman Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Prior to that, the G.O.P. will be featuring speeches by U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, Florida’s Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Ben Nelson, along with a list of people who have worked closely with Romney . That includes former Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kerry Healey and Jane Edmonds, former Massachusetts Secretary of Workforce. (see speakers schedule below)
The decision to have Healey and Edmonds lay the groundwork for the introduction of Mitt Romney to the nation for the first time as the official presidential nominee of the Party is based more on the strategic desire to bolster Romney’s image among women, a critical voting bloc in the coming election. As the Lt. Governor of Massachusetts under Mitt Romney, Healey will undoubtedly focus on how as a woman, she saw first hand how Romney and his policies were driven by a desire to help all Americans, including women.
In Jane Edmonds, as the former Massachusetts Secretary of Workforce under Romney, listeners will likely hear a speech that promotes Romney’s abilities to create jobs, especially for women.
Both Edmonds and Healey will surely contradict the liberal attempts to portray Romney and the G.O.P. as being behind some kind of imaginary war on women.
All of this will occur under the last night’s them “We Believe in America”.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus stated;
“Thursday’s program will focus the national spotlight on the many reasons Governor Mitt Romney is uniquely suited to lead us through the challenges our nation faces during this difficult time”.
“Millions of Americans know Mitt Romney as a public man who helped build nationally known businesses like Staples and Sports Authority, balanced the budget in Massachusetts without tax hikes and rescued the scandal-ridden 2002 Winter Olympics,”
According to William Harris, the convention’s CEO;
“Thursday’s program will introduce America to the Mitt Romney his family and close friends know”.
