Last week, Duncan announced the participation of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas in this fifth annual installment of his gathering. Additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
“I’m excited to make another trip to South Carolina to speak to fellow Republicans about our big, bold reforms and how our party can succeed in 2016 and beyond,” said Walker. “I look forward to the opportunity to share our conservative message at this great event.”
We’ve written previously on how Duncan’s early-state influence is on the rise – prompting speculation as to who might receive his 2016 endorsement (as well as speculation regarding his own future aspirations down the road).
The third-term congressman certainly seems to be intrigued by Walker.
“Scott Walker has been on the front lines fighting for conservative issues in Wisconsin,” Duncan said. “He has the respect of the people of South Carolina and I’m looking forward to hearing his message.”
Along with former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Walker has consistently been among the early frontrunners in early-voting South Carolina – although that was before the meteoric rise of billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump.
Duncan’s event will take place on Monday August 24, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. EDT at the Anderson Civic Center (3027 Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, Anderson, S.C.). For more information on the event, visit www.JeffDuncan.com.
