Welcome to National Journal’s Convention Daybook, which provides a floor schedule and a list of major events at the Republican National Convention each day.
Convention organizers rescheduled today’s lineup, thanks to Tropical Storm Isaac. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will call the convention to order at 2 p.m., start a national debt clock that tracks how much was added during the convention, and announce a recess at 2:10 p.m. Though there will be little happening on the convention floor, all major speakers have been rescheduled. Here are the highlights:
- Mitt Romney will be nominated on Tuesday night and give his acceptance speech on Thursday night.
- Ann Romney will speak on Tuesday night.
- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will speak on Wednesday night.
- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will speak on Thursday night, prior to Romney’s speech.
