TAMPA (USA TODAY) -- Republicans unveiled a revised schedule for the GOP national convention that will allow Mitt Romney to deliver his nomination acceptance speech on Thursday night.

All of the major convention headliners will speak over the course of the now three-day event, with Ann Romney and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie featured on Tuesday night.
Convention organizers canceled all Monday events, with the exception of a brief pro forma session, because of the threat from Tropical Storm Isaac. Asked what would happen if the weather changes and the situation becomes worse, Romney strategist Russ Schriefer said: " It's a hypothetical question and I don't want to get into it in that way."
Earlier today, Romney's campaign dismissed reports that the convention would be extended to Friday. "Not true," said Andrea Saul, a Romney spokeswoman.
The Tampa Bay Times has a link to the revised three-day convention schedule on its website.
The new schedule calls for Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to call the convention to order on Monday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET and then immediately call a recess because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Republicans will unveil a new debt clock.
On Wednesday, GOP vice presidential contender Paul Ryan will deliver his acceptance speech during the 10 p.m. ET hour. He'll be preceded at the podium by former secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.
On Thursday in the 10 p.m. ET hour, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Romney as originally planned. The convention schedule for the final night includes testimonials from former Olympic athletes, including gold medalists Mike Eruzione and Derek Parra.
