Georgia Attorney General Sam OlensRepublican convention organizers announced Wednesday that Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens would deliver a primetime address to delegates the night Paul Ryan formally accepts his party’s vice presidential nomination.

Olens will share the stage with another southern attorney general, Pam Bondi, who was likewise an early supporter of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and factored prominently in the legal challenge to the nation’s recent health care reforms.

The pair will succeed Sen. John McCain on the dais.
