Future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning is joining a number of conservative leaders at a GOP retreat that includes a guest list featuring Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Politico reports that the two-time super Bowl champion quarterback is scheduled to speak to Republicans from the House and Senate during their three-day meeting held to shape the party’s agenda.
More details will come out after the event which begins Wednesday. Our guess is that his presence is ceremonial. He gives the retreat a little star-power and celebrity backing, and boy does the Republican party need all of that it can get right now.
Manning was a Jeb Bush (Republican) donor in the 2016 presidential election.
