Reports - Christie to Keynote in Tampa
By Justin Sink - 07/18/12 01:18 PM ET
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will be the keynote speaker at next month's Republican National Convention, according to multiple media reports.
The New York Post — which, along with NBC News, is reporting Christie's keynote slot — reported that word of his selection was "quietly" going out to Republicans in New Jersey.
But sources at the Republican National Committee said Wednesday that they did not know whether Christie had been officially offered the keynote role.
Assuming the reports are accurate, the primetime speaking address is an indication that Christie — known for his brash style and populist tone — is unlikely be Mitt Romney's vice presidential selection.
