DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds will speak at this week’s Republican National Convention.

Reynolds’ campaign said Sunday that the Iowa Republican will address the convention remotely on Tuesday and doesn’t plan to attend the event in Charlotte, North Carolina. GOP officials in Charlotte are expected to vote to renominate President Donald Trump in a small in-person session Monday.

Iowa Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst is also scheduled to speak to the convention on Wednesday.

The Trump campaign announced the list of speakers for the Republican National Convention.
