Posted June 16

— A British politician instrumental in scheduling a referendum that led to his country's anticipated exit from the European Union is among the featured speakers at an annual conference assembled by a North Carolina conservative think tank.

Former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage was slated to address the Conservative Leadership Conference beginning Friday at a Raleigh hotel and organized by the Civitas Institute.

Other scheduled speakers at the two-day event include U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows and Mark Walker, former Gov. Pat McCrory and the president of the anti-abortion political action group Susan B. Anthony List.

Hundreds of activists also were expected to receive training and interact with leaders of other national conservative groups and conservative authors.
