Va Congressman To Speak At W&L’s Mock Convention

LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor will speak at Washington and Lee University’s mock political convention.

Organizers of the quadrennial event say the Republican congressman from Virginia will address the Mock Convention on Feb. 10.

The two-day event will feature speeches by other politicians and analysts, and will culminate in the final prediction of the Republican presidential nominee.
