Pawlenty not among ‘top things’ to watch at RNC

Former governor and presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty is scheduled to address a prime time crowd at the Republican National Convention tonight, but his speech could be overshadowed by Wednesday’s Republican star power.

According to USA Today’s “5 things to watch” list, Pawlenty is not a top priority compared to Paul Ryan’s acceptance speech, a video tribute presented by Ron Paul’s son, John McCain, tributes to both former Bush presidents and an address by Condoleezza Rice–scheduled to appear right after Pawlenty.

Pawlenty is scheduled to speak in the 8 p.m. hour.

The 2012 RNC kicked off Tuesday. Highlights from the day include remarks from Ann Romney, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Senator Kelly Ayotte, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Mia Love.
