What to Know
- Both Florida Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi will have speaking roles during the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi are going to speak at the Republican National Convention.
Convention organizers on Thursday released a partial list of speakers that shows the two Florida politicians will appear on stage at next week's event in Cleveland.
Bondi was the first high-profile Florida politician to back presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump ahead of the March primary. Scott didn't endorse Trump until after the primary.
Other well-known Florida Republicans including former Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio are skipping the convention.
Bondi is getting a speaking spot despite questions that have been raised about her connections to Trump. She personally asked Trump for a contribution to a political committee around the same time her office was being asked about a New York investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University.
