Under the Dome

Donald Trump to headline N.C. Republican Party convention

The Donald is the featured guest at the N.C. Republican Party's convention in June.

Donald Trump will speak at 7 p.m. June 1 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro.

"Donald Trump is an entrepreneurial icon," said state party Chairman Robin Hayes. "He is someone who has invested time and money into making North Carolina a better place to live and work. At a time when North Carolinians, just like the rest of the country, are wondering how to get our economy going again, I can think of nobody more qualified to speak about entrepreneurship and job creation that Donald Trump."

Trump's North Carolina investment refers to his recent deal to buy The Point, an golf course in an exclusive Charlotte neighborhood that will take the name Trump National.

Trump flirted with running for president in the GOP primary. Expect him to "fire" at least a few Democrats, most notably Gov. Bev Perdue, as he rallies conservatives ahead of the 2012 presidential election.
