Thompson vs Edwards
A battle of what might have been…
The Manufacturers’ Association of Northwest Pennsylvania is mixing a Democrat and a Republican again for its annual event.
Democrat John Edwards and Republican Fred Thompson, both of whom failed to gain traction in the 2008 presidential race, will be the featured speakers at the association’s 103rd annual event on June 18.
In June 2007, the association booked at Tullio Arena the husband-and-wife team of Democratic strategist James Carville and Republican adviser Mary Matalin.
This year’s event will be at the Bayfront Convention Center.
Adding to the political flavor, former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow will moderate.
