Upcoming Political Events

Thought I would spread the word about several East Tennessee events on the horizon, a few of which are Lincoln or Reagan Day events. Folks, I want to say a word about the Lincoln/Reagan Day dinners. With the notable exception of Knox County, these events are the annual fundraisers for your county Republican party. They are what keep the doors open, so to speak. They are also a fun time to connect with friends and neighbors. Please make efforts to help your local parties, particularly in this non-election year. 2009 sets the stage for 2010, which, for Tennessee Republicans, may be one of the most crucial state election cycles in history due to the redistricting issue.

Editorializing aside, here are the specifics on the events:
