Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is the latest likely Republican presidential contender to confirm an appearance at the NHGOP’s “First-in-the-Nation Republican Leadership Summit” on April 17 and 18 in Nashua.
Paul’s appearance was first reported by the New Hampshire Journal on Twitter this morning and follows confirmations of appearances by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, businesswoman Carly Fiorina, and former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton.
Paul will speak on the morning of Saturday, April 18.
“I am excited to return to New Hampshire to help the NHGOP with this event,” Paul said. “New Hampshire’s place in national politics provides an important platform to discuss how politicians in Washington are threatening our very way of life, over-taxing our families and routinely ignoring our Constitution.”
NHGOP chair Jennifer Horn said, “We are excited to welcome Senator Rand Paul back to the Granite State to address the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit. Senator Paul is principled leader who understands the important role that the New Hampshire Primary plays in the selection of our next Republican Presidential nominee.”
Paul was last in the state on Jan. 14 for a full day of campaign-style stops. He is fully expected to formally announce a candidacy for President, but his team has denied reports this week that the announcement will come on April 7.
