The Lincoln County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner is set for Saturday, with U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, of North Carolina’s 5th Congressional District, confirmed as the event’s guest speaker.
“This is a great opportunity for not only local Republicans, but also Republicans statewide, to come and hear Congresswoman Foxx speak,” Lincoln County GOP Chairman Bradley Putnam stated in a press release announcing the dinner, one of the largest events conducted by local Republicans every year.
The event, the release noted, will “set the tone” for the coming year, which will include city elections.
“Congresswoman Foxx is emerging as a top Republican contender for U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, and this is an excellent opportunity to come meet (Foxx) and hear her stance on key issues,” Putnam added.
Lincoln County’s delegation to the North Carolina General Assembly — Rep. Jason Saine and Sen. David Curtis — are expected to be in attendance, along with other local Republican officials.
“This year’s dinner will honor those who have put forth great effort to achieve the great success we had this past election and kick off for what we must prepare for in this year’s election,” Putnam said.
The dinner will be 6:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Pumpkin Center. Tickets are available by visiting the party’s website at http://lincolncountygop.org.
