Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. will join a half-dozen other governors, as well as other domestic leaders, during the Sept. 2 program at the Republican National Convention.
The tentative schedule was announced Wednesday by the convention organizers. The convention runs Sept. 1-4 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.
Also on the schedule is Mitt Romney, who is speaking the night of Sept. 3. That is the same night the yet-to-be-named vice presidential nominee is scheduled to speak.
That could be interpreted to mean that Romney, who is one of the rumored front-runners for the vice presidential slot, will be speaking as the vice presidential candidate. But it could also mean that he is not the vice presidential choice, since he is on the schedule.
Also scheduled for Sept. 3 are Carly Fiorina and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who have also been rumored to be on the vice presidential list. Other contenders scheduled to speak are Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, both speaking Sept. 4, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is speaking on Sept. 2.
Of those who have been suggested as potential vice presidential selections, the only one not on the schedule is former Ohio Congressman Rob Portman.
Huntsman's speech will be given on a night dedicated to the theme of "reform."
The schedule released Wednesday is tentative, and it does not include times for the individual speakers. It can be found at the graphic link above.
