CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam is slated to headline an event next month for the West Virginia Republican Party.

The party announced Tuesday that Haslam would attend the GOP's Path to Victory lunch in Charleston on July 24. The event will take place at the Capitol Conference Center.

Haslam was elected governor in 2010 and won re-election last year. He serves as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, a group poised to spend money in West Virginia's open race for governor in 2016.

West Virginia Senate President Bill Cole will also attend the event. The Mercer County Republican is running for governor.
