Gov. Bobby Jindal to address GOP convention next Tuesday



Organizers of the Republican National Convention (RNC), which will kick off next Monday in Tampa, Fla., have been releasing the roster of speakers day by day. Today RNC chair Reince Priebus announced the schedule for Tue. Aug. 28, which features Gov. Bobby Jindal. No specific time was given for Jindal's address to the crowd.

Jindal is on a roster of seven GOP governors who will speak that night, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will finish the evening with the convention's keynote address. Also scheduled to speak Tuesday are several candidates in smaller races across the country, as well as Northern Exposure actress-turned-radio host Janine Turner.

The convention will continue Wednesday night with more speeches, including that of vice presidential designate Paul Ryan, and conclude Thursday night, when former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will formally accept his party's nomination.
