Here's your chance
If you would be interested in being invited to speak at the Convention, let me know. I have an in with the Donald. He and I go way back. (I understand I am being considered for Vice President, but don't let that out just yet until he wants to make it public.)

Make a check out to "Stan G. Duncan" and send it to me and I'll see what I can do.
