Steele Will Headline the GOP Advance

Anita Kumar

One of Maryland's political stars, former lieutenant governor Michael S. Steele, will deliver the headline speech at the Silver Anniversary Dinner Saturday as part of the Republican Party of Virginia's GOP Advance.

The Advance, an annual gathering of Republican activists in Virginia, will be held this weekend at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs in the western part of the state. The event will include speeches, seminars and receptions with Republicans seeking statewide office including Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling.

Steele, who lost a U.S. Senate race two years ago, is chairman of GOPAC, a group that recruits Republican candidates across the country and one of the most prominent black Republicans in the nation. He headlined a "Drill Baby Drill" tour across Virginia before the November election.

He announced last month that he will seek the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee. The next chairman will be selected at the RNC meeting in January by 168 committee members, including three Virginians: Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jeff Frederick, national committeman Morton Blackwell of Arlington and national committeewoman Kathy Terry of Roanoke.
