John McCain's former rivals for the GOP presidential nomination will take center stage at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night.
Party officials say that Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee will all speak in prime time at the Xcel Energy Center, site of the Republican convention.
Giuliani, the former New York City Mayor, scrapped his run presidency in late January.
Romney, the former Massachusetts Governor, gave up his bid for the White House in February. He was on the short list of potential running mates for McCain.
Huckabee, the former Arkansas Governor, dropped out one month later.
All three men backed John McCain after ending their campaigns.
