Anson County Republicans were honored at a four-day state convention in Cherokee, N.C. from June 6-8.
Governor Pat McCrory, Lt. Gov. Dan Forest and Mike Huckabee all spoke at the convention. William John “Bill” Bennett, an American conservative pundit, politician, political theorist and former Secretary of Education also spoke. Republican Governors Association vice-chair and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also addressed the crowd.
Donna Wells, the chairman for the Anson County Republicans, attended the convention. “Anson County was honored for having all of their delagates plus many other attendees for six years in a row,” she said. Anson was the only county recognized for its attendance out of all 100 counties in North Carolina.
Wells said that the convention was well-attended and hopeful for the upcoming election. “The group had a spirit of unity and victory for the coming elections,” she said. “Everyone should register and vote this November. It is a critically important election and this is the time to make your voice heard for our county, state and country.”
Wells also expressed her gratitude for the faithful Anson County Republicans. “[I’m] very proud of all of the delegates, alternates and guests for driving to Cherokee, N.C. and participating in our state convention,” she said.
