Potential GOP Presidential Candidates To Speak At RNC Meeting

| by Kathryn Schroeder

Three potential Republican presidential candidates are scheduled to speak at the Winter Republican National Committee meeting in San Diego, California, next week.

The opportunity may be seen as a way for each individual to sell their vision for the future to the group of influential political leaders, reports CNN.

The three potential presidential nominees that will be speaking are Dr. Ben Carson, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The trio join others who have addressed RNC meetings in the past year, including Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.

Gov. Walker has also previously spoken at an RNC meeting, and recently hired a political strategist who is believed to take the position of campaign manager should Walker announce his plans to run in the 2016 election.

The meeting will also feature RNC Chairman Reince Priebus being formally elected to another 2-year term, and there may be a release of additional information regarding the 2016 primary debate schedule.

The meeting begins Wednesday, Jan. 14, and concludes Saturday, Jan. 17, with a farewell breakfast. 

For those interested in voicing their own opinion on who should be the Republican nominee in the 2016 presidential election, a straw poll is available on the GOPs website.
