McDonnell, Bolling, Cuccinelli to address first Va. tea party convention
All three of Virginia's statewide elected officials -- Gov. Bob McDonnell, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, all Republicans -- will speak at Virginia's first annual Tea Party Convention next month.
McDonnell and Bolling will participate on a panel about reforming state government, while Cuccinelli and former governor George Allen will speak about federalism.
About 3,000 to 5,000 people are expected to attend the event at the Richmond Convention Center Oct. 8-9.
Other confirmed speakers include radio host Lou Dobbs, conservative commentator Dick Morris and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.
Federation of Tea Party Patriots Chairman Jamie Radtke previously told The Post that the event will include seminars on history, current public policy and grass-roots activism, and a presidential straw poll.
The convention, which will take place less than a month before the midterm elections, will include congressional town halls for each Virginia district.
