Door County Republicans received a major boost of enthusiasm this weekend with two events happening in the area. The Republican Party of Wisconsin held their annual convention on Friday and Saturday in Green Bay while its Door County chapter held its postponed Lincoln Day Dinner on Sunday. State Senator Andre Jacque attended the events with a break in between to receive the Legislator of the Year Award from the Wisconsin Veterans of Foreign Wars. He says despite the challenges the state and the country are facing, there was also a sense of optimism moving forward.
Sunday’s Lincoln Day Dinner also welcomed former U.S. Representative Sean Duffy, state Rep. Joel Kitchens, and U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher. During the state convention, former Door County Republican Party Chair and current Eighth Congressional District Vice Chairperson Bill Berglund was honored for his contributions to the Republican Party of Wisconsin over the years.
