The most newsworthy items in the race for chair of the Minnesota Republican Party come courtesy of Terry McCall & Brandon Sawalich. I received word from Brandon that he is thinking about it; I received news (originally from Corey Sax) that Terry McCall is also thinking about it. (Click here to read more about the movement for McCall on MPR.
I first met Brandon in 2009; I have known or at least known of Terry McCall for a couple of years longer. I also serve with Terry on the board of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota. I am partial to both gentlemen. I would support either of them over pretty much any of the alternatives. However, Terry McCall will be attending Simply Right this coming week.
For those interested in coming to the meeting of my PAC, Simply Right, this coming Tuesday evening, I wanted to include an updated guest list. Since it will be the only event of Simply Right I would anticipate being able to personally attend before returning to Washington D.C. in January, I plan to make it a Christmas bash as much as anything. Here's the present guest list:
- Republican State Executive Committee Member Rick Weible
- Congressional District 6 Republican Chairman David Fitzsimmons
- Radio Host Sue Jeffers
- Representative Roger Crawford
- Pine County Commissioner Mitch Pangerl
- 10th Judicial District Judge Tad Jude
- Congressional District 2 Chairman Terry McCall
Simply Right will begin at 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13. It will be held at Tobies Restaurant & Bakery in Hinckley, Minnesota. The cost for non-members to attend is $10. The cost of becoming a member is $20; memberships are valid for one year. Exceptions may be made for those on the guest list. If you are interested in getting on the guest list, contact me personally or just leave a comment here with your name.
