John DiStaso's Granite Status: NHGOP to host northeastern conference in March on 'expanding base'
The North East Republican Leadership Conference will be held on March 14-15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua.
Republicans from Maine to Maryland are expected to attend.
Speakers confirmed are Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, former Ambassador John Bolton, conservative radio host Michael Graham and commentator Mark Steyn.
The two-day event will include training sessions and panel discussions "dedicated to how the Republican Party can begin event winning additional demographic groups (young, women, minority and Democrat voters)," according to the NHGOP. A fund-raiser will be held each night of the conference.
Prices are $75 for the conference and $75 for each dinner, with an "all-inclusive package" set at $199.
Net proceeds will go to the state party.
In a statement to be issued later today, NHGOP Jennifer Horn says, "This conference will allow Republicans across the Northeast to come together, hear from prominent conservative speakers, discuss ways that we can spread our message of fiscal responsibility and take back our government. We are proud to host this important event and believe that it will help us lay the groundwork that Republicans need to win in November."
