NJ Gov. Chris Christie To Give RNC Convention Keynote Speech

CBS News is reporting that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be giving the Republican National Convention keynote speech in just two short weeks.

Chris Christie, the sometimes abrasive but always entertaining governor of New Jersey, is set to be announced Tuesday as the keynote speaker for the Republicans’ national convention later this month.


The scheduling decision was first reported online by USA Today early Tuesday and confirmed by Republican officials directly involved in convention planning. The Republican officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the formal announcement was not planned until later Tuesday.
