Former Democratic Congressman Artur Davis (7th-Alabama) will speak on Jan. 23 to the Republican Women of Clifton.
Davis, who changed his party affiliation after a failed run for the Alabama governorship, will talk about the recent presidential and congressional elections and how Republicans will find success the next time around.
"If today’s generation of Republican centrists are genuinely interested in rebuilding the Republican coalition, it will require the dexterity of motivating the party’s ideological core to embrace a reform agenda, rather than the far less plausible task of rallying the party around a vision that its populist base will vow to defeat," Davis wrote on his website on Jan. 14.
Davis also spoke at the 2012 Republican National Convention in support of presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The meeting will be held at Fairview Elementary School, 5815 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, and will begin at 7 p.m. RWC members and guests are invited for refreshments, followed by a brief business meeting and Davis' remarks.
