Dozens of Republicans in Door and Kewaunee counties filled banquet halls on Sunday to celebrate their past dinner and look ahead towards the future.
U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher, State Senator Andre Jacque, and State Assembly Rep. Joel Kitchens spoke at the Lincoln-Reagan Dinner events held in Sturgeon Bay and Luxemburg. The topics focused on efforts to restore election integrity in the state following the November election and took aim at policies passed by the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats.
Door County Republican Party Chair Stephanie Soucek says she could feel the energy in the room from the over 150 attendees at their event.
Kewaunee County Republican Party Chairperson Ron Heuer is encouraged by the enthusiasm being shown at the events.
Heuer says their Lincoln-Reagan Dinner was one of its most attended since the year when former Governor Scott Walker was recalled while other similar events bested their previous records. Lincoln-Reagan Dinners are traditionally held by county Republican Party groups as an annual celebration and fundraiser.
The Democratic Party of Kewaunee County will hold its own summer event on June 13th.
