An opportunity to speak at your party’s convention is a big deal for a politician. Georgia’s Attorney General, Sam Olens, now knows what that feels like.
The political blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered wrote that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus made the announcement earlier today regarding the theme for the evening, as well as the speakers. Olens will join 2008 presidential candidate, and GOP nominee, John McCain and former Florida governor Jeb Bush as speakers on Wednesday night, August 29. The blog quoted Priebus as saying:
“We want to remind Americans that we don’t have to settle for four more years of high unemployment, low pay and deep debt,” Priebus said. “We will devote Wednesday night to showing the country that Mitt Romney’s ‘Plan for a Stronger Middle Class’ will restore our country as the best place in the world to find a job, start a business or hire a worker.”
Priebus said the Wednesday night program “will show that the Romney approach is both optimistic and achievable.” The Romney plan will work toward energy independence, ensure that middle-class Americans have the skills to succeed, pursue trade that works for America, cut the deficit and champion small business.
