Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a possible White House candidate in 2012, will headline a major dinner for the Republican Party of Florida in September.

The Mississippi governor is booked as keynote speaker for the Florida GOP’s “Victory Dinner” on September 10 in Orlando, a party official told CNN Thursday.

The Florida GOP hopes to raise $1 million at the event, the party’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Along with Barbour’s appearance, the dinner will promote the GOP’s slate of statewide candidates, including Senate hopeful Marco Rubio and the winner of the divisive Republican gubernatorial primary fight between Attorney General Bill McCollum and health care executive Rick Scott.

The dinner will take place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, which, according to its website, boasts views of nearby Space Mountain and Cinderella Castle.
