Tailgate Party - October 9, 2014
Indeed, the MC GOP knows how to party! Ten crock pots of amazing chili all gone....140 hot dogs gone...a gorgeous huge, sheet cake eaten to the last crumb...
Congressman Meadows led the charge to fight the next 25 days to secure a win!
Individuals donated the food and all the trimmings for our rally, leaving us with more means to get the message out in radio and print ads.
And the MC GOP did not feed the crowd free food prior to the football game on the 9th, taking money away from the FHS booster club!
Some 150 conservative voters/voices crowded into the MC GOP HQ last night to support our NC Senator Jim Davis and soon to be DA, Ashley Welch.
What a super night. We raised the roof, raised money and rallied for two of our own.
A tribute to one of our heroes...Senator Bob
