TAMPA, Fla. -- Everyone knows the big names who will be getting face time on the stage of the Republican National Convention this week. The nominees of course. Some of the larger, ahem, Republican governors. And rising party stars.   Plenty of lesser known Republican lights will have a turn as well, and some you might not have expected.   The conservative actress Janine Turner, star of the 1990s TV hit “Northern Exposure,” will speak on Tuesday evening, though not in prime time.

Barry Goldwater said in 1994, "If they [the religious right] succeed in establishing religion as a basic Republican Party tenet, they could do us in.

WASHINGTON -- Nick Ayers, one of the most sought-after operatives in the Republican Party, has signed on to run former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's presidential exploratory committee and likely presidential campaign, a sign the slow-moving GOP race is picking up steam. Pawlenty got to know Ayers through the Republican Governors Assn., where the latter served as executive director for four years, overseeing a team that raised a record $117 million in the last election cycle. "He is without question one of the best political talents in America," Pawlenty said in a statement.

TAMPA, Fla. - An approaching tropical storm, forecast to become a hurricane as it roars into the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday, has forced postponement of the first day of the Republican National Convention here, party officials announced Saturday evening. The opening session Monday was to have featured Mitt Romney's formal nomination by thousands of convention delegates as the party's 2012 presidential standard bearer. A planned speech that evening by Romney's wife, Ann, had previously been moved to Tuesday because the TV networks were not carrying events from the first night.

WASHINGTON - The race to replace John F. Kerry in the U.S. Senate will offer Massachusetts voters a familiar choice: a longtime Democratic officeholder against a fresh-faced Republican. Democratic Rep. Edward J. Markey and Republican businessman Gabriel Gomez won their respective party nominations in a special primary election Tuesday, after a campaign overshadowed in the closing weeks by the Boston Marathon bombings.

As the Republican National Committee begins to chart its path after stinging losses in recent presidential elections, a major focus of its spring meeting in Hollywood is how to draw more support from communities that have shunned the party in large numbers, notably Latinos, Asian Americans and single women. Much of Thursday's agenda is focused on reaching out to such groups. This afternoon, committee members will take part in workshops about messaging, ethnic media, minority communities and women.

WASHINGTON - Still no Sarah Palin, but the Republican National Committee announced a roster of mostly conservative headliners for the GOP convention this month in Tampa, Fla. The Republican 2008 presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, will be among the top speakers at the four-day gathering of party faithful. One of the party's rising stars, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, will have a leading spot, as will top conservatives - Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and now television host, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
