WASHINGTON (12/18/07)—Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) joined the growing lineup of lawmakers scheduled to speak during the 2008 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). The 2008 GAC is March 2–6, and CUNA's first at the landmark Washington Convention Center. McConnell will speak to the GAC on Wednesday morning, March 5. McConnell was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984. He became Senate Minority Leader in 2006. He currently serves as a senior member of the Appropriations, Agriculture and Rules Committees. Also featured on the 2008 GAC program are Gen. Colin Powell and political commentator Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball" and NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show." Other lawmakers on the program include Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.); Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.); House Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.); and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.).
