Final Night Lineup for Republican Convention

George Wenschhof

8:00 PM ET - The scheduled speakers are Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty - you can read the entire text of his speech here, Florida Senator Mel Martinez, and former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.

9:00 PM ET - Kansas Senator Sam Brownback who was a former candidate for President, Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.)- you can read his speech here, former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge - here is the entire text of his speech, and Cindy McCain - read her speech here.

10:00 PM ET - Video of Senator John McCain followed by his acceptance speech - read his speech here.

Pawlenty, Lieberman and Ridge had been considered the favorites for McCain to pick from for his Vice-President running mate. Let's see if the mudslinging continues by the Republicans tonight. Also, look to see if McCain can match Obama's speech in both the substantive positions on the issues and the 38 million who watched on TV.

Governor Palin came close last night as 37 million viewed her speech. Tonight, a 3 minute biography video of Palin will be shown - last night it was pulled due to time constraints. You can view it here.

As text to the speeches or portions thereof, become available to us, we will update this post with links to the text.

Latest rumor is well liked and respected former Washington Redskins coach, Joe Gibbs will speak tonight. The Redskins kick off their season tonight at 7:00 PM ET in a game against division rival New York Giants.
