"As momentum for the 'SEC Primary' continues to grow, likely candidates for president are beginning to realize that the road to the White House runs through Georgia," said Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who spearheaded efforts to secure speakers for the 2015 State Party Convention.  "We are excited to welcome Governor Christie to Georgia and look forward to hearing his vision for America's future."

Governor Christie and Sec. Kemp will speak at a breakfast event on Friday, May 15, at 8:30AM in the Athena Ballroom at the Classic Center.  The GAGOP Convention begins at 2PM.

Georgia Republicans are heading back to the Classic Center in Athens for their biennial State Convention on May 15-16.

During the two-day event, in which delegates will vote on State Party officials and resolutions, numerous elected officials - including likely 2016 presidential candidates - will address the crowd of conservative leaders from around the state. 

Senator Marco Rubio

Florida senator and 2016 presidential candidate Marco Rubio will speak at the 2015 Georgia Republican Party Convention in Athens. 

Former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, Rubio was elected to the United States Senate in 2010.  He serves on the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Committee on Foreign Relations, Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

Rubio announced his candidacy for president on April 13, 2015 at the Freedom Tower in Miami, Florida.

Senator Rubio is scheduled to speak on Friday, May 15, at approximately 3PM in the Athena Ballroom.  Times, locations, and availability for featured speakers during the convention are subject to change.
