The Madison County Republican Party announced that Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry will be the featured speaker at the party’s 60th Annual Lincoln Day Dinner.
McHenry, a six-term Republican from North Carolina’s 10th district, is the fourth-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives. McHenry has served as the chief deputy whip since August 2014, and in this role, he is responsible for leading a team of five senior deputy whips and helping to manage the legislative priorities of the congressional Republicans.
“It is an honor to have congressman McHenry attend our Lincoln Day Dinner,” Madison County GOP Chairman Chris Slusser said. “I look forward to hearing from him about how the Republican-controlled Congress plans to move our country forward.”
The dinner will be held on Saturday, March 28, at the KC Hall in Highland, 12454 Illinois 143. There will be a social hour beginning at 5:30 p.m., with dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. In addition to McHenry, congressmen John Shimkus, Rodney Davis and Mike Bost; state Sen. Kyle McCarter, state Reps. Dwight Kay and Charlie Meier, and Madison County Republican officials will be attending the dinner.
Dan Proft, co-host of WIND 560’s Chicago’s Morning Answer, will also be a featured speaker. In addition to co-hosting Chicago’s Morning Answer, Proft is a conservative activist and was a GOP candidate for governor in the 2010 Republican Primary.
Individual tickets are $35 or $280 for a table of eight.
