A close friend of Mitt and Ann Romney confirmed to Whispers Wednesday night that Clint Eastwood is indeed Thursday's mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention.
"It's him," said Paul Gilbert, who has known the Romney family for nearly a decade and served as the GOP presidential candidate's Arizona state chair. "I can confirm that, 100 percent."
Eastwood, a long-time Republican and former mayor of his hometown in California, Carmel, endorsed Romney earlier this year. At an August fundraiser, Eastwood said he believed Romney would "restore a decent tax system" to create "fairness."
