Florida delegation adds new headliners to breakfast schedule, including Rick Scott



The Florida delegation will start the last day of the Republican National Convention with a high-powered breakfast.

Newly announced speakers are former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, Gov. Rick Scott, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and former Amb. John Bolton.

The downside? The breakfast has now been moved up to 7:15 a.m. -- an early hour for delegates (and reporters) who will inevitably be bleary-eyed from the night before.

Wednesday's speakers were political commentator Dick Morris and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, still a beloved figure among many Florida Republican politicians.

Scott is expected to address the full convention Wednesday night, along with Attorney General Pam Bondi and Sen. Marco Rubio via video.
