Chris Collins To Address GOP Convention in Prime Time

by on August 24, 2008

The Buffalo News’ Bob McCarthy gives us the story:

Chris Collins crafted a reputation for himself on his march to the county executive’s office last fall with a simple yet effective slogan: “Elect a chief executive, not a chief politician.”

Now Collins travels to St. Paul next week for the Republican National Convention and the biggest political stage of all. In fact, Collins will literally stand on that stage when he addresses the convention in prime time on Sept. 2. The theme that night is “reform,” and the spin already surrounding the Collins appearance is “who better to speak of reform than Chris Collins?”

This is an official, certified big deal for the county executive. The GOP is thrilled to showcase a successful businessman who campaigned on a pro-business platform and won a big victory in an overwhelmingly Democratic county. He will be presented as living proof that such an approach can work, and fit nicely into the purpose of modern day conventions.
