NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey's top aide has been recommended for an official role at next week's Republican National Convention.

Lance Frizzell, who serves as the Blountville Republican's chief of staff, has been selected as one of 10 tally clerks working at the Tampa, Florida, event to crown former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and U.S. Representative Paul Ryan the GOP presidential and vice presidential nominees.

The other tally clerks include state party chairs from Alabama, Pennsylvania and the Virgin Islands, as well as several Republican National Committee members from around the country.

Frizzell also serves on the state party's executive committee alongside Memphis attorney John Ryder, who has been named an assistant parliamentarian at the convention.
