The national college and high school conservative youth organization Turning Point organizer was the Northwest Suburbs’ Charlie Kirk.
He was inspired when his local Republican organization blew the high schooler off after he suggested that the GOP should aim some attention at youth.
I first met him at a fundraiser at Gary Rabine’s Johnsburg home when Bill Prim was running for Sheriff. He was a speaker and brought a passel of young people.
Then, he spoke at Patriots United, raising $25,000 from local conservatives to hire a local organizer.
Now he is the main speaker for the February 15th Lincoln Dinner of the McHenry County Republican Central Committee at D’Andrea’s in Crystal Lake.
The price is $150, half price for Republican Precinct Committeemen.
