Members of John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign will have a major presence at the April 16 -19 Log Cabin conference of GOP homosexual activists in Washington, DC.
Meghan McCain, the 24-year-old daughter of the former presidential nominee will be among the featured speakers at the annual convention. The title of her speech is “Winning the Next Generation — How can the Republican Party attract more young voters?”
Also speaking will be Steve Schmidt, McCain’s former campaign manager. The topic of Schmidt’s address is “Moving Forward.”
And, former Arizona Congressman Jim Kolbe will host a Trustee Reception at his home.
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says McCain is taking the wrong message to young voters.
“I’m afraid that some Republicans are going to think, ‘Hey, we have to go pro-gay and try to be hip to get the youth vote,'” suggests LaBarbera. “Look, the kind of youth who are going to be the long-term heroes in the Republican Party are going to be the principled youth of today — and the principled youth don’t want us to play around or go half-way on homosexuality, or just fight gay marriage and not anything else.”
