Today's RNC Schedule, Wednesday August 29

Published Wednesday, August 29, 2012 12:03 am

TAMPA – Wednesday's schedule for the 2012 RNC includes Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan's address to the convention. Also speaking are 2008 GOP candidate John McCain, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Florida Governor George Bush, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Ohio Senator Rob Portman and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty. The theme, said RNC Chair Reince Priebus, will be “We Can Change It.”

“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.

“Having suffered through the longest sustained period of high unemployment since the Great Depression, Americans already know we can do better,” said Republican Convention CEO William Harris. “Next Wednesday, Republicans will lay out Mitt Romney’s plan to do just that.”

Priebus and Harris announced the following schedule for Wednesday, August 29:
