The Alabama Republican Party is excited to announce that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will be the special guest at its annual Winter Dinner.
“Governor DeSantis needs no introduction, and I am thrilled to welcome one of America’s strongest Republican leaders to the State of Alabama. This is an amazing opportunity for our state, as well as the Alabama Republican Party, ” said ALGOP Chairman John Wahl.
The ALGOP Winter Dinner – which traditionally features some of the biggest names in Conservative politics – will be held on Thursday, March 9, 2023 in the Birmingham Sheraton Ballroom. Tickets are $250 per person, or $400 per couple, and can be purchased on the ALGOP website: www.algop.org.
“The Governor is well known for his common sense conservative values, and defending the people of Florida from government overreach. Under his leadership Florida’s economy is soaring. He has a consistent record of cutting wasteful spending and achieving record budget surpluses, and won re-election by over 1.5 million votes, the largest raw vote margin for a gubernatorial candidate in Florida history. We are looking forward to hosting him here in the Yellowhammer state,” said Chairman Wahl.
This event will be closed to the press. All press inquiries should be directed to ALGOP Communications Director Jeannie Negrón Burniston at email@example.com.
