Mar 16, 2009 1:16pm

The chairs of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and National Republican Congressional Committee today announced that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will deliver the keynote address at the annual Senate-House Dinner.

The dinner will be held on June 8 at the Washington Convention Center.

“Governor Palin has quickly emerged as one of the most popular and recognizable faces in the Republican Party," said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who called her "a breath of fresh air from the business-as-usual crowd in Washington, and is one of our party’s up-and-coming young governors who will play a critical role in our re-building efforts in the years to come. Last fall, she electrified and energized crowds across the country, and we expect she will generate a similar amount of enthusiasm at this spring’s dinner.”

Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, called it "a pleasure to announce one of the brightest rising stars in the Republican Party" and said he’s awaiting "the inspirational address our Party needs, as it rebuilds and prepares for a victorious election cycle.”
