Picking up steam
Interest in Missoula’s Republican efforts is growing exponentially. Candidates for all house district and senate district seats have stepped forward and are anxious to take their ideas to Helena next year. We’ve had to ask for a larger room for Central Committee meetings. County delegates have been elected. They will help select Presidential delegates during the Montana GOP convention mid-June in Missoula. The state GOP platform will be revised and a State Central Committee meeting will be held. Certain qualifications apply to each of the three events. Go to www.mtgop.org for details. This is a wonderful opportunity for local Republicans to attend the state convention just for the price of registration. It may be several years before the convention returns to Missoula… go on line now and sign up for the early registration price.
The Legislative Campaign Committee (LCC) has been providing invaluable candidate training across the state. The sessions are well-attended by veteran legislators and first-time candidates alike… there’s always something new to learn and there’s always room to sharpen those speaking skills.
Missoula’s Lincoln-Reagan Dinner is taking shape. The auctions are fun and the money ultimately goes to help candidates’ campaigns. Local, state and federal candidates will be present. Meet your candidates, shake some hands and blow the dust off the old checkbook. Politics runs on money. Mark your calendars for June 2 and be sure to return your invitation with a check early. We’re expecting a sell-out. Not sure you’re on the invite list? Contact us soon!
