New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been selected to deliver the keynote address at the Republican National Convention later this month in Tampa.
Christie told USA TODAY in an interview posted on the newspaper's website early Tuesday morning that his speech will focus more on making the case for electing Mitt Romney (really?) than on bashing President Obama (yea, right!).
The tough-talking first-term governor said he's been "grinding away" on the speech in the past few days (more like gnashing his teeth) since Romney contacted him about the highly coveted convention role.
