WILMINGTON — Presidential Adviser Kellyanne Conway will be in Wilmington on June 3 as the keynote speaker in the state Republican Party’s convention.

The announcement was made by NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes on Tuesday.

“I am absolutely delighted that Kellyanne has agreed to be a keynote speaker at our state convention,” Hayes said. “Her nonstop passion and dedication is inspiring to all. She’s an integral piece of the Republican Party as a whole, and we thank her greatly for her willingness to support our state party.”

“She’ll be anchoring the convention for us,” Woodhouse said. “She’ll be speaking at our Saturday lunch, which has usually been our most well attended event.

“We’re looking forward to the convention. It’s a great weekend to be in Wilmington, the weather will be great. We’re planning a beach party for Friday night, and there will be some other events too we’re still working on,” he added.
