New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will give the keynote address at the 2012 Republican Convention. The keynote address could set the tone for the convention and propel Christie into the national spotlight even more. According to CBS:

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.

“I’ll try to tell some very direct and hard truths to people in the country about the trouble that we’re in and the fact that fixing those problems is not going to be easy for any of them,” Christie told USA Today in an interview announcing his speech. He said he will describe his experiences in New Jersey as evidence that “the American people are ready to confront those problems head-on and endure some sacrifice.”

Florida Senator Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney on the final night of the convention.

What do you think about Chris Christie being awarded the keynote address slot? The keynote speech is considered the highest profile speaking slot at the convention besides those accepting the party nomination. Let us know your thoughts in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
