Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, will address the 2014 Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. Following his remarks, the Speaker will be joined by his wife, Callista, and they will each sign copies of their latest books.
Speaker Gingrich is the well-known architect of the “Contract with America” that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in forty years. Gingrich is also a former candidate for the Republican nomination for President, a popular author, speaker, and co-host of CNN’s Crossfire.
“Callista and I look forward to seeing many of our friends in New Orleans at the Republican Leadership Conference,” Gingrich said. “This will be an important time for conservatives to plan for the 2014 and 2016 elections,” he said.
RLC 2014 will be held on May 29th – 31st. The event will feature the nation’s top Republican strategists, elected officials, activists, donors, bloggers and candidates. Once again, the Republican Leadership Conference will be nestled between the mighty Mississippi River and the historic French Quarter at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
Confirmed speakers for RLC 2014 include Bobby Jindal, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Mike Lee, Allen West, Michele Bachmann, David Bossie and Elbert Guillory.
