With the Palm Beach County Republican Party rescheduling its Lincoln Day dinner featuring Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump to March 20th, Broward GOP Chairman Robert W.Sutton is reminding local Republicans that tickets are almost sold out for Saturday’s Lincoln Day Dinner in Fort Lauderdale

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is the featured keynote speaker at the annual Broward Republican Party event. The program will also feature remarks by Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, State Representative George Moraitis, State Representative and Republican Party of Florida Chairman Blaise Ingoglia, Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day, and National Committeeman Peter Feaman.

Serving as the 2016 Lincoln Day Dinner Chairwoman is Susan Gingerich.  Heather Moraitis and Teresa Sutton are serving as event co-Chairwomen.

“I’m excited to announce that South Carolina Senator Tim Scott will be the featured speaker at our Broward GOP Lincoln Day Dinner, Chairman Robert Sutton told South Florida Reporter.  “Senator Scott endorsed Marco Rubio for president last month which was pivotal to Marco’s success in the South Carolina primary. The two of them have worked together in the U.S. Senate to expand the opportunities of the American Dream for everybody.”

Senator Scott represents the best of the American Dream.  He went from a single working parent household in poverty to the United States Senate. After serving 12 years on the Charleston County Council and one term in the South Carolina General Assembly, Scott was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 2010 – the first Republican African-American Congressman from that state since 1897.  In 2013, he was named by Governor Nikki Haley to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jim DeMint. Scott was later victorious in a special election for the final two years of DeMint’s term becoming the first African American Senator elected from the South since 1881.

“I’m excited to join so many conservative grassroots leaders in Broward County,” Senator Tim Scott told South Florida Reporter in a written statement.  “It’s because of the hard work of conservatives at the local level that Republicans control the House and the Senate and ultimately will win the White House in November.”

Prior to the dinner, BREC Chairman Robert Sutton will host a VIP Reception that will include Senator Scott, CFO Jeff Atwater, Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, State Representative and RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia, Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day, National Committeeman Peter Feaman, State Representative George Moraitis, a number of local, state, and federal officials as well as candidates for public office.

“The reception offers an opportunity to chat one-on-one with our keynote speaker and special guests,” Chairwoman Gingerich told South Florida Reporter.  “Guests will also have an opportunity to speak with candidates who have filed for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, the Florida House and Senate, as well as many local offices.”

The 2016 Lincoln Day Dinner of the Broward Republican Party will be held Saturday, March 12th at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, located at 1881 SE 17th St, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.  Doors will open at 6pm for a VIP and general reception.  Dinner and the program will begin at 7pm.
