Reminder: the three-day GOPAC conference for local and state Republicans nationwide starts today at the Renaissance Hotel. The kickoff speaker is former Congressman J.C. Watts of Oklahoma (and a former quarterback for the Sooners).
The gaggle of folks outside the hotel -- a common stopover for visiting sports teams -- will not be there trolling for autographs from the White Sox (or handing out crazy glue for Pirates gloves). Rather, they will be a welcoming committee from Dem gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato's campaign.
From a news release:
PITTSBURGH: TODAY, Thursday, June 17, 2010, Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato’s campaign will welcome GOPAC members to Pittsburgh.
Onorato’s campaign will welcome members of GOPAC to Pittsburgh.
DATE/TIME: TODAY, Thursday, June 17, 2010 11AM
LOCATION: Renaissance Hotel (Outside)
