Newscast Media TAMPA, Fla—As the Republicans officially kick off their convention on Tuesday, the theme will be, "We Built It", a phrase refuting Barack Obama's argument that successful people did not build their success, rather, someone else did it for them.


Several prominent Republicans will be addressing the nation including: Speaker of the House, John Boehner; Reince Priebus Chairman, Republican National Committee; Hon. Kelly Ayote, U.S. Senator (NH); John Kasich, Ohio Governor; Hon. Mary Fallin, Oklahoma Governor; Hon. Bob McDonnell, Virginia Governor; Scott Walker, Wisconsin Governor; Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, Gov. Nikki Haley, Gov. Chris Christie, Ann Romney and many, many more.

Sammy Rodriguez of Sacramento, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, will lead the closing benediction. Rev.
