TAMPA, Fla. - Four years ago, Mary Fallin was just getting her feet wet as a freshman congresswoman of the Sooner state.
Now, the Oklahoma governor will be speaking at the Republican National Convention Tuesday as one of the GOP's keynote draws.
Fallin, whose name was initially whispered as a potential vice presidential nomination herself, joined Larry Kudlow on CNBC's 'Kudlow Report' Monday in Tampa, Fla. to talk about Oklahoma -- and the nation's -- state of affairs.
Fallin, sitting alongside conservative radio host and former presidential candidate Herman Cain, received questions pointedly surrounding the electability of GOP hopeful Mitt Romney.
The governor gave Kudlow a resounding, if not expected, yes, pledging her support to Romney.
Fallin is scheduled to take the RNC stage Tuesday evening. Tropical Storm Isaac is not expected to further delay the convention.
