Rand Paul Will Speak at Republican Convention

Given a position over his father, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is listed as one of the speakers at the Republican National Convention that will officially make former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney the party's nominee.From CBS News: In an effort to reach out the libertarian and Tea Party-minded members of the Republican Party, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, the son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, will also have a speaking role.Earlier this year, Paul endorsed Romney as his father—Congressman Ron Paul—suspended his presidential bid while still pursuing delegates through the state process. In the early stages of the race there had been rumors that Rand Paul was on the list as a potential running mate, but a speaking spot at the convention is still a major coup for Kentucky's junior Senator.
