Among those set to speak are Sen. Ted Cruz and the 45th President of the United States of America Donald Trump.

Gov. Greg Abbott was scheduled to speak but delivered a video message to the convention. During his scheduled time to speak Abbott held a conference in Uvalde, Texas to address relief efforts.
