Here’s what the Republicans are doing tonight with their three hours of prime time speeches, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. local (8 p.m. to 11 p.m. EDT).
The first hour will focus on women, hispanics and blacks, with speeches from eBay found Meg Whitman, Michael Williams, chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission, Luis Fortuno, the resident commissioner of Puerto Rico, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, and GOPAC Chairman Michael Steele.
The last two hours will feature the three men who lost in the primary to Mr. McCain (more on their speeches later): former Massachussets Gov. Mitt Romney, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, will be introduced by Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle, and then it’s the speech of the night, possibly the week.
