After being postponed a day due to Tropical Storm Isaac, the Republican National Convention is officially in full swing in Tampa, Florida.
A who’s who roster of Republican leaders and politicians will be giving speeches at the convention this week.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, House Speaker John Boehner, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Mitt Romney’s wife Ann Romney are among those speaking on Tuesday alone.
You may not see them at the RNC, but there are some Hollywood heavyweights that are registered Republicans and known conservatives according to the Federal Election Commission or by their own admission.
Take a look at some prominent African-American celebrities who are down with the GOP:
Rapper and actor LL Cool J
Comedienne and talk show host Sheryl Underwood
Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin
Actor and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
