Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

The 2003 Western States Republican Leadership Conference will be held from June 12th through 15th in Portland, Oregon.
Western States Republican Leadership Conference

The 2003 Western States Republican Leadership Conference will be held from June 12th through 15th in Portland, Oregon. This prestigious event, which is held exclusively for active Republicans in the 15 states in the Western region, has become one of the most meaningful, dynamic and fun filled Republican events to meet our party leaders and discuss the issues that are of concern to our Party and our candidates.

The four-day conference will offer attendees the opportunity to hear and meet with a wide array of top Republican leaders, elected officials, and national strategists. Special guests to be invited to this event will include President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney, cabinet officers, Republican Governors, Senators and Congressmen.

Space will be limited, and available on a first come, first served basis once the official registration forms have been mailed. So make plans today to attend!

For more information, go to www.wsrlc.org.

Sincerely,

Jack Oliver,
Deputy Chairman
Republican National Committee

I like how they say that Bush and Cheney have merely been "invited", which doesn't neccessarily mean they will show up. I can't imagine that Bush would ever come to Portland again after the protests in August....
June isn't that far off. There must be some way to find out the guest list, since most of these politicos probably have their schedules mapped out way in advance.
