Senator Rick Santorum to Headline Denton County Republican Party’s Lincoln-Reagan Event

Senator Rick Santorum, CNN’s senior political commentator and founder of the grassroots organization Patriot Voices, will be the featured speaker at the Denton County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan dinner on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the D/FW Hyatt Regency Hotel.  The gala banquet will again be emceed by State Senator Jane Nelson, whose enthusiasm is always contagious.

Rick Santorum has been a voice for the voiceless – standing up for those struggling in this economy, protecting life at every stage and fighting to ensure that our nation is secure from those who wish to do us harm.

In 2012, Rick and Karen co-founded Patriot Voices, a grassroots and online community of Americans committed to finding ways to restore the American dream for hardworking families. Patriot Voices impacted a number of economic, social and national security issues by mobilizing its army of grassroots volunteers.

Rick served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 1995, and in the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2007.  Rick took on Washington’s powerful special interests from the moment he arrived in our nation’s Capitol in 1991. He was a member of the “Gang of Seven” that exposed the Congressional Banking and Congressional Post Office scandals. Santorum wrote and championed legislation that outlawed the heinous procedure known as Partial Birth Abortion as well as the “Born Alive Infants Protection Act,” the “Unborn Victims of Violence Act,” and the “Combating Autism Act” because he believes each and every individual has value and the most vulnerable in our society need to be protected.

Senator Santorum served eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee where he led the fight before the attacks of September 11, 2001 to transform our military from a Cold War force to meet today’s threats. He was a leader on US-Israeli relations, authoring both the “Syria Accountability Act” and the “Iran Freedom and Support Act” which he successfully fought to pass in spite of initial opposition by President Bush. Rick firmly believes that we cannot allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.

Acknowledged as one of the state’s largest and most exciting political events, this year’s dinner promises its usual great silent auction, as well as an exciting live auction including a Texas Motor Speedway VIP package, a fabulous dinner for ten prepared by internationally-honored Chef Morris Salerno, plus other marvelous items among the temptations for the attendees.

The gala evening begins with the private Lincoln Cabinet reception followed by the VIP reception which will provide the opportunity for guests to visit with Senator Rick Santorum as well as elected officials from across the state. Again this year, the dinner will feature its popular “Campaign Headquarters” where recent and future candidates will be spotlighted for Texas voters to meet and greet, according to DCRP Chairman Lisa Hendrickson.

Dinner table sponsorships and individual tickets are available now by phoning 940-383-4446 or by registering online at www.dentongop.orgIndividuals or businesses wishing to donate to the live or silent auctions should contact Republican Headquarters at the same phone number.
