Republican gubernatorial hopeful Pat McCrory will be the keynote speaker at the Wake GOP's 2012 precinct meeting in Raleigh next month.
Wake Republicans are calling the Feb. 16th meeting at Dorton Arena "Back to Basics." It's open to all registered Republicans in the county, but an RSVP is recommended.
According to today's release about the meeting, attendees will choose precinct and House district officers for 2012, meet GOP candidates, and receive training on subjects ranging from social media to "Talking to Liberals."
McCrory is scheduled to officially announce his candidacy for governor later this month in Greensboro. At present, he has no serious competition for the GOP nomination. The latest polls show the former Charlotte mayor holding a double-digit lead over incumbent Democrat Gov. Bev Perdue.
