The Republican National Convention culminates tonight with remarks by the presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Here are the other faces you'll see tonight:
You know him because: He's a U.S. representative and Senate candidate from Florida.
Republicans love him because: He strongly opposes federal bailouts, and cosponsored an amendment to the constitution requiring a balanced federal budget.
Democrats don't like him because: He signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and refuses to raise taxes. Newt Gingrich
You know him because: He was a representative from Georgia, the speaker of the House, and a 2012 Republican presidential candidate.
He doesn't want you to remember: He has had multiple affairs and cheated on his wives (he's been married three times), but campaigns on conservative family values.
Republicans love him because: In 1994 he helped write the Contract with America, a Republican document advocating lower taxes and a smaller government. The party gained a congressional majority for the first time since the 1950s and the contract was considered a great success for the conservative movement as a whole.
