The Minnesota Republican Party will host a possible presidential candidate at its annual Lincoln/Reagan Day dinner in February. The party’s website says Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour will speak at the event on February 25th.
Barbour is chair of the Republican Governor’s Assocation (Gov. Pawlenty is the Vice-Chair) and is considered as a possible candidate for president. Gov. Barbour was also the first 2012 candidate to visit New Hampshire.
