RNC was not Gaga for Gaga

RNC Communications - April 3, 2013

A story in yesterday’s Washington Examiner unfortunately left many people with the impression that the RNC had asked Lady Gaga and other artists to play at the Republican National Convention.    To be clear, the RNC neither asked, offered, thought of or ever considered the idea of Lady Gaga performing at our convention.  And clearly, we didn't offer a million dollars

The Examiner updated the story by adding an Editor’s Note clarifying that AAN is not connected to the RNC   http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2525899

The story is actually referencing an event by American Action Network, an independent group  that is no way affiliated or connected to the Republican National Committee or Republican Convention.

AAN Response:

“In planning for our fundraiser in Tampa, e-mails we’re exchanged between AAN fundraising staff and outside vendors exploring various performance options.  AAN is an independent group and is no way affiliated with or connected to the RNC nor was the RNC ever privy to these internal discussions. We considered some acts and didn’t seriously consider others, but we were ultimately happy with a great Kid Rock concert. Our events were independent from the official convention and the RNC.” – Dan Conston, Communications Director, American Action Network ( 610-220-3687 (c))
