Governor Mary Fallin and billionaire oil tycoon Harold Hamm are among those scheduled to speak at the Republican National Convention next week in Cleveland, Ohio.

The GOP released a partial list of those who will speak at the week-long event that begins Monday.

The list of 62 speakers includes more than a dozen current or former elected officials, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Fallin is a former two-term U.S. House member and three-term lieutenant governor who is in her second and final term as Oklahoma governor.

A major donor to Republican candidates, Hamm is an Enid native and the founder and CEO of Oklahoma City-based energy giant Continental Resources.

The convention’s theme, “Make America Great Again,” will focus on the core themes of Republican Presidential presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s campaign.

The Republican Convention runs July 18 - 21.
