Preibus will be the opening-night speaker at the confab, which runs March 14 through 16 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame. The party also announced Friday that House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, will speak at the Saturday-night banquet.
The party previously had announced that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will speak as well.
“We’re thrilled to have such a distinguished lineup of speakers for this convention,” party chairman Jim Brulte said in a news release. “Both Chairman Priebus and Congressman Sessions have track records of success in reviving Republican organizations and will be extremely helpful in the ongoing efforts to rebuild our state party from the ground up.”
