OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin and billionaire oil tycoon Harold Hamm are among those with Oklahoma ties who will be speaking at next week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Republican National Convention officials on Thursday released a partial list of those who will speak at the week-long event that begins on Monday.

The list of 62 speakers includes more than a dozen current or former elected officials, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Fallin is a former two-term U.S. House member and three-term lieutenant governor who is in her second and final term as Oklahoma governor.

A major donor to Republican candidates, Hamm is an Enid native and the founder and CEO of Oklahoma City-based energy giant Continental Resources.
