Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be the featured speaker at the Denton County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan dinner Feb. 10 at the Denton Embassy Suites Hotel. The gala banquet will be emceed by State Sen. Jane Nelson (R- Flower Mound).
Palin rose to prominence as the surprise running mate of Sen. John McCain (R- Arizona), who lost the presidency to Barack Obama in 2008. In July 2009, she resigned her governorship and became an author, releasing autobiography “Going Rogue: An American Life” that November and following it up with “America by Heart” next year, both of which became bestsellers. She was one of TIME Magazine’s “100 most influential people” in 2009 and 2010.
Acknowledged as one of the state’s largest and most exciting political events, this year’s dinner promises its usual silent auction as well as an exciting live auction, which will include a fabulous dinner for 10 prepared by internationally-honored chef Morris Salerno, plus other marvelous items among the temptations for the attendees.
The evening begins with the private Lincoln Cabinet reception followed by the VIP reception, which will provide the opportunity for guests to visit with Palin and elected officials from across the state. The dinner will feature its popular “Campaign Headquarters” where recent and future candidates will be spotlighted for Texas voters to meet and greet. The festivities will continue with an afterparty, according to DCRP Chairman John Dillard.
