NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Republican Party’s annual Statesmen’s Dinner fundraiser will feature a keynote speech by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

State GOP Chairman Ryan Haynes said Haley will present her ideas on how to “unite the divisions” that have befallen the country.

The event scheduled for May 13 at the Music City Center in downtown Nashville will also honor the legacy of the late U.S. Sen. Fred Thomson, who died in November.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush spoke at last year’s Statesmen’s Dinner, while New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie headlined the event in 2014. Other past speakers include 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
