COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Republican convention planners have set speaking slots for Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Rob Portman next week.
Kasich is scheduled as the fifth speaker in the Tuesday night session, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
Portman, who was among the candidates considered as running mate for presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, is one of the speakers for the Wednesday night session.
He is scheduled to speak immediately after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and is in a group that includes U.S. Sen. John McCain, who was the Republican nominee in 2008. That session also is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.
The convention runs Monday through Aug. 30 in Tampa, Fla.
