The Jackson County Missouri Republican Committee Annual Lincoln Day Dinner & Committee Fundraiser will be held on March 18th.
With the Lincoln Day dinner being a celebration and fundraising event for the Republican Party, Jackson City, Missouri has much to celebrate about.
Being the 2nd largest county in the state of Missouri, Jackson County played an important role in the election of 2016 helping Donald Trump easily win the state by over 500,000 votes.
It is also the first time in State history that all five major seats are held by the Republican Party. Governor, Lt. Governor, State Treasurer, Secretary of State, and Attorney General. Republicans are also the majority in the House and Senate.
Jackson County Missouri Republican Committee Chairman Mark Anthony said that the event is
“PART CELEBRATION OF OUR 2016 SUCCESS, PART HONORING OF OUR 2016 VOLUNTEERS AND PART PREPARATION FOR CONTINUING THE WORK WE HAVE BEGUN, THIS EVENT WILL BE SPECIAL. WE HAVE INVITED ALL OF OUR 2016 STATEWIDE ELECTION WINNERS TO BE WITH US FOR THE COCKTAIL HOUR AND TO SPEAK AT THE DINNER.”
