On Saturday, August 22, the Alabama Republican Party will hear an address from GOP Presidential candidate, Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker (R).
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan said on Facebook:
“It’s the ALGOP 2016 Race Week at the Talladega Superspeedway! The ALGOP will welcome Gov. Scott Walker to our Aug. 22 summer lunch and meeting. Presidential ‘Reagan Jelly Bean’ preference poll, the Talladega International Hall of Fame tours, silent auction and time with Senator Richard Shelby and Senator Jeff Sessions as well as elected officials and hundreds of Republican friends.”
The ALGOP summer meeting will be held immediately after the Summer Luncheon.
Attending the meeting of the ALGOP executive committee is free, but you must purchase tickets to the luncheon with Scott Walker.
Gov. Scott Walker recently told “Fox and Friends” that his immigration plan is very similar to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump: “I haven’t looked at all the details of his, but the things I’ve heard are very similar to the things I mentioned.” Walker supports building a border wall with, “The technology, the personnel to make sure it’s safe and secure.” He is also opposed to sanctuary cities and amnesty for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country: “I’ve said no amnesty. I don’t believe in amnesty, which I think is similar to what he said.”
FYI: Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) has endorsed Ohio Governor Tom Kasich (R) for the Republican nomination for President.
