CNN reports that Ann Romney, wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, will be “the main headliner to kick off” the Republican National Convention Aug. 27 in Tampa.

The party is keeping exact speaking times a secret for now and the candidate’s wife is not on the list of speakers released so far.
