A press release from the McHenry County Republican Party:
CRYSTAL LAKE…..Mitt Romney supporters are invited to gather in Crystal Lake on Thursday, August 30 to watch the television broadcast of presidential candidate’s acceptance speech for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Supporters will gather from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at D’Andreas in Crystal Lake, where televisions will be set up for a live viewing of the culmination of the convention, when Mitt Romney takes the podium as the official GOP nominee.
D’Andreas Banquets is located at the intersections of Routes 14 and 31, at 4419 Northwest Highway.
“Thursday’s event will mark the official kick-off of our fall campaign,” said McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Mike Tryon.
“This is the most important election season in our history and Republican energy is already reaching a fever pitch.
“I look forward to seeing a room full of enthusiastic Republicans and other Romney supporters, who are ready to work very hard over the next 2 ½ months to see a Republican sweep in November from President of the United States all the way to members of the McHenry County Board.”
According to Tryon, the first 100 people to arrive will receive a free Romney yard sign. All guests will be able to enjoy free snacks and a cash bar.
“McHenry County’s Mitt Romney coordinator John McCrory has been working closely with the Illinois Romney Coordinator, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford, to ensure that our county has the supplies and materials it needs to produce a solid McHenry County Romney victory on November 6th,” said Tryon.
The McHenry County GOP is also planning debate watching parties for the key debate nights of October 3rd, 16th and 22nd. Information about those events will be shared as it becomes available.
The local GOP will be opening a Route 14 campaign office within the next two weeks at unit #22 in the Crystal Lake Plaza Shopping Center.
Unit #22 is just a few doors down from the Joseph’s grocery store.
All candidates will be promoted out of that office, and literature and yard signs for all of them will be available.
