The leadership of the Scott County Republican Party announced today that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will be the featured speaker at the Party’s annual Ronald Reagan Dinner. “Mitt Romney traveling to the Quad Cities a week before Election Day highlights the importance of our campaign to carry Eastern Iowa for the Republican ticket,” said Scott County GOP Chair, Judy Davidson.
Elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, Governor Romney presided over a dramatic reversal of state fortunes and a period of sustained economic expansion. Without raising taxes or increasing debt, Governor Romney balanced the budget every year of his administration, closing a $3 billion budget gap inherited when he took office. By eliminating waste, streamlining the government, and enacting comprehensive economic reforms to stimulate growth in Massachusetts, Romney got the economy moving again and transformed deficits into surpluses.
“Like Americans everywhere, the people of Iowa are fed up with high taxes, out-of-control spending and failed economic programs that have added debt but not jobs,” said Romney. “This election we can send a powerful message against the big government tax and spend culture by electing strong fiscal conservatives like Terry Branstad, Chuck Grassley, Ben Lange and the rest of the GOP ticket.”
Other invited dinner speakers include the Governor Terry Branstad, Senator Chuck Grassley and congressional candidate Ben Lange. The Ronald Reagan Dinner is an annual GOP fundraising dinner designed to raise funds in support of the Scott County Republican Party. The October 26th dinner will be held at the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center. Reservations can be made on-line at www.ScottCountyRepublicans.org or for more information call 563-823-5854.
