Cheney to keynote RJC event in Vegas; Christie expected, too

Former Vice-President Dick Cheney will be the lead speaker at a March meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas, with embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also expected to attend, I've learned.

The event will be chock full of potential 2016 hopefuls, including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Former UN Ambassador John Bolton and Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer also are scheduled at the March 28-30 conference.

The meeting will take place at -- where else? -- The Venetian, providing guests easy access for any Sheldon Adelson-ring-kissing. (Hint: Expect to be asked about online poker. Further hint: Profess to have "serious concerns.")

The star-stidded cast also is a testament to the growing influence of the organization led by Matt Brooks.

Now about those "Ralston Reports" appearances.....
