Flake, Edwards to Headline 2014 Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner
Posted at 11:43 a.m. on Dec. 10, 2013
Featured speakers Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Md., are officially on the hook to leave “This Town” laughing at the Washington Press Club Foundation’s 70th annual congressional dinner.
The charity event, scheduled to take place on Feb. 5 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, helps fund the WPCF’s educational initiatives, ongoing oral history project and intern placement program.
WPCF dinner committee Co-Chairwoman Christina Bellantoni (current PBS NewsHour political editor/incoming Roll Call editor in chief) said Flake and Edwards got the nod after careful consideration of members who might enjoy mixing it up a bit on stage. The newly minted senator has shown he’s not afraid to take his cues from cult cartoons, while Edwards has been known to talk a little smack around the softball diamond.
