(Newser) – Another round of Republican National Convention speakers has been announced, and leading the pack is former Mitt Romney arch-rival Rick Santorum. Some top Romney aides had hoped Santorum wouldn't speak after he offered some bruising primary attacks against the former governor, Reuters notes. Also speaking will be Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush—though brother George W. Bush won't be in attendance. No word yet on Sarah Palin, though Politico notes that RNC chairman Reince Priebus told Fox News last night that he'd like to see her there. “I think a lot of her and hope that she does speak."
