Tenn. GOP Fundraiser To Feature S. Carolina Gov.

Posted at 4:16 PM, Mar 17, 2016

The Tennessee Republican Party's annual Statesmen's Dinner fundraiser has been set to feature a keynote speech by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

State GOP Chairman Ryan Haynes said Haley will present her ideas on how to "unite the divisions" that have befallen the country.

The event scheduled for May 13 at the Music City Center in downtown Nashville will also honor the legacy of the late U.S. Senator Fred Thomson, who died in November.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush spoke at last year's Statesmen's Dinner, while New Jersey Governor Chris Christie headlined the event in 2014. Other past speakers included 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, former President George W. Bush, and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
