Hoyer to Keynote 2007 Florida Democratic State Convention
The Florida Democratic Party's 2007 convention will take place at Disney World on October 27th. U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer will be delivering the keynote address. Hoyer is known as a moderate Democrat.
FDP chair Karen Thurman noted that the location put the convention near the districts of two of their biggest congressional targets in 2008 - Ric Keller and Tom Feeney, both representing central Florida. Feeney is hampered by his need to focus on raising money for his legal defense fund and Keller is considered at risk from a spirited primary challenge. Both Congressman voted against the S-CHIP bill to expand healthcare coverage for poor and middle class children.
