Dick Cheney to speak at LIA fall luncheon
Law said he expects Cheney to discuss a range of topics because of his background, which includes being secretary of defense under George H.W. Bush, serving as a congressman and being chief executive of Halliburton, a provider of products and services to the oil and gas industry. Cheney served as vice president with George W. Bush for eight years.
"He's going to have a lot to say on the war on terror . . . the economy and certainly the presidential election," Law said. "I'm sure he's not going to be shy."
The fall luncheon typically features more high-profile national leaders. Last fall, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced at the LIA event that he was not seeking the presidential nomination. Past guests have included former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
