Raleigh, N.C. — Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, will be a keynote speaker at the North Carolina Republican party's annual convention, officials said Tuesday.
"Her nonstop passion and dedication is inspiring to all. She’s an integral piece of the Republican Party as a whole, and we thank her greatly for her willingness to support our state party," state party Chairman Robin Hayes said in the announcement of Conway's appearance.
Conway served as Trump's campaign manager in the closing months of the 2016 election and was appointed later counselor to the president. Since Trump took office, she has been embroiled in a string of controversies, from arguing "alternative facts" about his inauguration to endorsing his daughter Ivanka Trump's fashion line.
The New Jersey native previously founded and ran a polling company that helped candidates with their outreach to women voters.
The state GOP convention will be held June 3 at the Wilmington Convention Center.
