Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers to speak at opening night of Republican National Convention

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Cathy Morris Rodgers of Spokane will speak at the Republican National Convention in Tampa next Monday, joining an opening-day lineup of Ann Romney, Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina and other prominent Republicans.

McMorris Rodgers is Mitt Romney’s congressional liason for the House, where she is the highest-ranking Republican woman as conference vice chair. McMorris Rodgers has been one of the more outspoken critics of President Obama.

She recently blasted a critical Democratic ad against Romney by saying Obama “has no rationale for re-election, no plans for how to address the economic downturn and no record to run on.”

Her sentiments should fit well with the convention’s opening-night theme: “We Can Do Better.”

The full roster of speakers for the rest of the four-day convention has not been released. Among those slated to speak Monday are Florida Gov. Rick Scott, House Speaker John Boehner and former Gov. Mike Huckabee.
