Other speakers on tap include outgoing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Second Lady Karen Pence and a pair of Republican lawmakers from New York, Long Island Rep. Lee Zeldin and Rep. Elise Stefanik, a rising GOP star from the North Country.
Underscoring the night’s theme of America as “Land of Heroes,” the slate also includes former US Navy SEAL and Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, National Association of Police Organizations President Michael McHale and retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who serves as Pence’s National Security Advisor.
Pence is delivering remarks from Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, the 1812 bombardment of which inspired Francis Scott Key to pen the poem later adapted as The Star-Spangled Banner.
The evening also includes an address from Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, joining a string of relatives who have already spoken.
Lara’s husband, Eric Trump, spoke Tuesday, as did the president’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, and First Lady Melania, while eldest child Don Jr. delivered remarks Monday.
The president himself is also promised to appear on each of the RNC’s four nights.
On Tuesday, that appearance was a naturalization ceremony welcoming five new US citizens, celebrating the theme of America as “Land of Opportunity.”
