O'Donnell to Deliver Speech in D.C. Tomorrow

Social conservatives from Washington, DC and around the country will get their first look at newly nominated Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell on Friday.


O'Donnell will speak at the annual Values Voter Summit, which gets fully underway Friday at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Northwest D.C. The Family Research Council, which hosts the convention, added O'Donnell to its list of speakers this morning.

"After she won her race, we invited her to come and speak," said FRC spokesman J.P. Duffy. The group's political arm had endorsed O'Donnell earlier this summer.

The speech will be O'Donnell's first to a broader conservative audience since she won her primary on Tuesday night, achieving one of the biggest upsets of the election season as she defeated Congressman Mike Castle for the Republican Senate nomination in Delaware.

It puts her in the company of Mitt Romney, Reps. Michele Bachmann and Mike Pence, Sean Hannity, and other social conservative leaders who will also speak at the summit.

The Values Voter Summit draws influential social conservatives from D.C. and across the nation. It opened today; speakers will take the stage Friday; the summit will conclude on Sunday.
