Elaine Chao to headline RPOF's annual Statesman's Dinner



Elaine Chao will keynote the Republican Party of Florida's annual Statesman's Dinner on Oct. 4, officials said.

Chao, the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 2001 to 2009, is a fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Her husband is Sen. Mitch McConnell.

"Secretary Chao's background and experiences will resonate with all of those who attend and we are grateful that she will be with us. I also look forward to gathering together as Republicans so we can celebrate the success of our Governor, our Cabinet, and Republican legislature," RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry said.

The Statesman's Dinner, a fundraiser for the Republican Party of Florida, will be held at 6:45pm at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The RPOF Quarterly Executive Board Meeting will be held that same weekend, October 4th - 5th.
