Kellyanne Conway to Headline Miami GOP Lincoln Day Dinner

May 28, 2017 - 7:30pm

A key figure from the White House is coming to Miami this summer. <--break->

Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway will be headlining the Miami-Dade Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day dinner June 27, party officials announced Friday. 

Conway, who headed up President Donald Trump's groundbreaking campaign last year, will speak to Miami Republicans, who have their work cut out for them this year and in 2018. 

Conway has not spent a great deal of time in Florida since Trump took office. She worked as a pollster and was put in charge of Trump's campaign shortly before Election Day last year. 

The top Trump official's message will be pivotal to Republicans in South Florida, who are overwhelmingly outnumbered by Democrats. 

Historically speaking, Miami-Dade County is a blue area prime for Democrats vying for office. 

Miami-Dade was one of the nine counties Trump lost in November and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took more votes in that area than anywhere else in the state. 

Republicans will have their eyes set on keeping two key seats in Congress during next year's elections. The departure of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen will open up a key seat for Republicans to try to hold onto unless Democrats can manage to snag a win next year. 

Democrats have already planned on targeting Ros-Lehtinen's seat as well as the seat held by U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced earlier this year that it would try and pick up Curbelo's seat in the swing district. 

The dinner will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel near the Miami International Airport.
