A cross-section of leaders will take the stage to highlight presumptive presidential nominee John McCain’s career beginning Monday at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minnesota.

“The speakers will address John McCain’s unmatched record of service and sacrifice for America, and his vision for moving our nation forward to keep us safe and get our economy back on track,” said McCain 2008 Communications Director Jill Hazelbaker in a news release.

The four-day event will be held at Saint Paul’s Xcel Energy Center. Some 45,000 delegates, alternate delegates, volunteers, members of the media and other guests are expected to attend the convention.

New Mexico is sending 32 delegates, including Sen. Pete Domenici, and 29 alternates including Veronica Rodriguez of Los Alamos.

Rodriguez works for Domenici and discussed the upcoming convention during an interview Saturday morning. “This will be my first convention,” Rodriguez said. “I’m excited and a little bit nervous not knowing quite what to expect but I’m really looking forward to it.”
