Celebrated actress, radio host and political commentator Janine Turner will address the Republican National Convention in Tampa August 28.
Turner (Friday Night Lights, Northern Exposure, Cliffhanger) will lead off the convention’s prime-time speaking roster that begins at 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday August 28, addressing attendees and viewers along with former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (NH), Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Turner said she has been working on her speech, which will focus on constitutional principles. “I am honored to be speaking at the Republican National Convention,” said Turner, who in 2010 joined with Cathy Gillespie to found Constituting America (http://www.constitutingamerica.org), a non-profit foundation aimed at engaging America’s citizens and youth in learning about the U.S. Constitution and the nation’s founding principles.
“I consider a Romney/Ryan victory to be absolutely pivotal to restoring our republic and preserving our country for our children and future generations.”
