ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, 24, has agreed to headline the annual convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, a GOP group which advocates on behalf of gays and lesbians. "Her willingness to reach out to organizations like ours shows her commitment to growing the Republican Party," Log Cabin convention manager Christian Berle told ABC News. "The title of Meghan McCain’s speech is ‘Winning the Next Generation — How can the Republican Party attract more young voters.’" Joining Meghan McCain at the conference will be Steve Schmidt, her father’s top 2008 strategist. The topic of Schmidt’s address is "Moving Forward." The Log Cabin Republicans are scheduled to meet in Washington, D.C., on April 17th at a time when the GOP is seeking to rebound from an election which left the party out of power on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. In addition to Meghan McCain and Schmidt, the Log Cabin Republicans will also hear from former New Jersey Gov. Christie Todd Whitman (R), who will discuss her work with the moderate Republican Leadership Council, and former Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., who will share his perspective as a former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Michael Steele, the newly elected chairman of the Republican National Committee, has also been invited to address the Log Cabin Republicans. He has not yet, however, committed to speak.  The Log Cabin convention is being held in conjunction with the Liberty Education Forum National Symposium. The registration fee for the conference is $395 per person.
