2017 Annual Lincoln Day Dinner

Friday, March 2, 2017 @ 6:00 PM 5:00pm Cash Bar Meet-N-Greet ~ 6:00pm Buffet

Delightful Buffet Dinner:

Featured Guest Speaker: Dr. Kelli Ward

“As a doctor, former state senator and conservative activist, I share your frustration with our federal government, which has become ineffective and, in many cases, downright corrupt. I’m proud to have fought side by side with limited government advocates across the country to battle the Democrats’ progressive big government agenda. The solution to big government is not more government – and I will continue to argue that point to anyone who incorrectly tells me otherwise.

I know that I can do more to advance the ideas of freedom and liberty so eloquently described in our founding documents, which is why I’ve decided to run for the U.S. Senate.  

In 2016, I challenged Sen. John McCain because I knew that he would be a problem for President Trump’s agenda. We learned a lot of lessons from the 2016 campaign against Sen. McCain, and this time around I’m confident that I’ve built a campaign that can go all the way.

I’m not interested in being “just another senator” in Washington, D.C. My mission is to transform a broken institution by bringing common sense and a hands-on philosophy to the U.S. Senate. Frankly, I’m fed up with career politicians who lack the courage to fight, and who sit on the sidelines while we run trillion-dollar deficits. Beginning on my first day in office, I will be a champion for “America First” policies that reignite the American economy, eliminate job-killing regulations and improve the life and liberty of every American.” Read more…
