The Broward Democrat, in the running to head up the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, will be the Democratic speaker at the Gridiron Club's Dec. 4 winter dinner.
The group -- "perhaps Washington’s most prestigious journalistic organization," -- Politico says, also holds a dinner for the president annually. The invitation-only club was founded in 1885.
She'll speak alongside Rep. Mike Pence, the Indiana Republican and outgoing chair of the House Republican Conference -- whom the group notes is a "potential 2012 candidate for President (or governor of Indiana).
The group notes that Wasserman-Schultz is "one of the rising House Democratic stars and currently Chief Deputy Whip."
