Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) will headline the National Republican Congressional Committee's annual fundraising luncheon on March 26, sources tell The Hill.


The annual fundraiser is the NRCC's biggest event of the year and gives Huckabee a chance to build connections with the House Republican conference, as he weighs a 2016 presidential bid.

"He'll be speaking at the end of the month to the Republican Congressional Committee — he's going to keynote their annual luncheon," Huckabee adviser Chad Gallagher tells The Hill.

Huckabee will keynote the luncheon, while former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will keynote the dinner event, an NRCC staffer says.
