Mike Huckabee, Reince Priebus To Headline GOP Convention

Mike Huckabee is a former presidential candidate and current Fox News host.

Fox News host and former Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will be the keynote speakers for the state GOP convention later this year.

The convention is being held in Fort Wayne in June.

In addition to voting on a platform, party representatives will also nominate candidates for statewide positions including auditor and treasurer at the convention.

Allen County Republican Chairman Steve Shine says the event will bring about 2,000 people to town and they will experience more than just party politics, including a nationally-known music act Saturday night.

Tourism officials say it could mean as much as $350,000 in economic benefits for Fort Wayne.
