Attorney General Sam Olens to Address GOP Nat'l Convention Wednesday Night

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus today announced the theme and speakers for Wednesday, August 29, the third night of next week's 2012 Republican National Convention. The theme, said 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.

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens will address the convention that night, along with 2008 presidential nominee John McCain, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
