Former Maryland Lt. Gov. and current GOPAC Chairman Michael Steele is back on the schedule of tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention.

Mr. Steele, who addressed the convention in 2004, had been slated to speak Tuesday before Hurricane Gustav forced convention officials to scale back and re-schedule convention activities.


The one-time Senate candidate previously told The Washington Times that he expected his speech to focus on the difference between Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama’s message of change, and real reform.

“I think it’s going to be an opportunity to kind of remind ourselves … that we have a lot to talk about and a lot to share with the American people in terms of what a difference our leadership makes,” Mr. Steele said.

Mr. Steele is slated to speak between 8 and 9 p.m.
