Boehner: “Not A Big Deal” That RNC Lacks GOP Freshman Speakers

The Republican National Convention is set to start, and only two of the eighty-nine GOP Freshman representatives have landed prime-time speaking slots - Reps Sean Duffy (WI) and Tim Griffin (AR).

The lack of freshmen could be attributed to the strategy that the Romney team is taking.  Speaking to TheHill.com, a Romney strategist said, ”I think it’s about Mitt Romney and who can best talk about the Mitt Romney story and talk about his strong points, so that’s what we’re going to do.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner, however, doesn’t see this as significant, saying, “I remember speaking at the 1992 convention when I was a freshman — part of the Gang of Seven — and, in fact, it was at 2 o’clock in the afternoon and nobody was watching. So I don’t think it’s a big deal.”

Regarding the prime-time speaking slots, it’s a mixed bag of who will be speaking.  While House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (VA) will not be addressing the convention,  Mia Love, a female, African-American Mormon running for Congress in Utah, has landed a spot.  In addition three other House candidates will address the convention, as well.
