Washington (CNN) – The newest rock star on the right will speak Friday in front of a national gathering of conservative activists.

Fresh off her upset victory over longtime moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle in Tuesday's GOP Senate primary in Delaware, Christine O'Donnell will speak Friday in the nation's Capitol at the fifth annual Values Voters Summit.

"We are pleased to announce that Christine O'Donnell will join us to speak at the Values Voters Summit. We applaud her for valiantly defending faith, family and freedom throughout this campaign," says Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, which organizes the yearly conference of social conservative activists.

"Christine O'Donnell has spoken out on behalf of the average person in her state who has been burdened by excessive tax and regulatory policies. She has tapped into the deep-seated mistrust that voters have toward big government," added Perkins.
