She has no known connection with the wine and spirits industries, but Alaska ex-governor Sarah Palin has been scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the 67th annual Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) convention in Las Vegas in April.
The former Republican vice presidential candidate was chosen because she "is a great supporter of America's free enterprise system and understands that industries like the beverage alcohol industry play a key role in driving our national economy," said Craig Wolf, WSWA president and CEO.
"We expect she will share with the convention attendees her analysis of the current political environment and her vision for America's future."
Normally, prominent figures in the industries are selected as keynote speakers.
