Jindal is on a roster of seven GOP governors who will speak that night, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will finish the evening with the convention's keynote address. Also scheduled to speak Tuesday are several candidates in smaller races across the country, as well as Northern Exposure actress-turned-radio host Janine Turner.
The convention will continue Wednesday night with more speeches, including that of vice presidential designate Paul Ryan, and conclude Thursday night, when former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will formally accept his party's nomination.
