The Alabama Republican Party will continue its trend of hosting the leading Conservatives in American politics when it welcomes presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy to the Yellowhammer State at a pre-debate reception in Birmingham on December 5th.

“I am pleased to have Vivek Ramaswamy joining us as we kick-off debate week here in Alabama! This is a historic occasion for our state as we hold our first ever nationally televised presidential debate, and I am appreciative that one of our Party’s rising political figures will be headlining this reception for the Alabama Republican Party. I look forward to giving the people Alabama the chance to meet Mr. Ramaswamy and showcasing our amazing state to another presidential candidate,” said Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl.

The event will be held at the Ross Bridge Resort (4000 Grand Ave, Birmingham, AL 35226) on Wednesday, December 5, 2023, from 6 to 7 p.m. Space is limited and anyone wishing to attend must RSVP by clicking here.

Vivek Ramaswamy is the latest presidential candidate to visit with the ALGOP this year. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis headlined the Party’s Winter Dinner in Birmingham and President Donald Trump was the keynote speaker at the record breaking Summer Dinner in Montgomery.

“Alabama is one of the strongest Republican states in the nation, and I am proud we have this opportunity to host all of our presidential candidates at the upcoming debate in Tuscaloosa. Raising Alabama’s political profile is one of my top priorities as ALGOP Chairman, and I am excited this debate will continue the work the Party has been doing in this area,” said Chairman Wahl.
