Nye Republicans to host annual Reagan Dinner in Pahrump

It’s that time of year, once again, when conservative-minded members of the community come together to celebrate the Grand Old Party and all it stands for during the Nye County Republican Central Committee’s annual Reagan Dinner.

Scheduled to take place from 4:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, the Reagan Dinner will be held at Nevada Treasure RV Resort at 301 W. Leslie St., on the north side of Pahrump.

The Republican central committee is encouraging everyone to head out and take part in the fun, and of course, all of the political discourse that is a traditional feature of this annual event.

“All great change in America begins at the dinner table,” Nye county Republican Central Committee Event Chair Stacie Hiebert stated, citing the event’s namesake, former U.S. President Ronald Reagan. “Come join the Nye County Republican Central Committee for great food, great people and great conversation.”

The evening is set to include a meal to tempt attendees’ appetites. The Reagan Dinner will also feature a wide variety of raffle prizes and even some silent auction items to tempt patrons’ pocketbooks as well, as the event is also a fundraiser.

This year’s guest speaker will be Trevor Loudon, whom the Republican central committee described as an author, filmmaker and public speaker from Christchurch, New Zealand.

“For more than 30 years, he has researched radical left, Marxist and terrorist movements and their covert influence on mainstream politics,” the central committee’s website reads. “He believes that these forces must be exposed and countered, as America’s continued role as a bastion of freedom is pivotal for the future of western civilization.”

In addition, Hiebert said the Republican candidates for the U.S. Congressional District 4 seat in Nevada have been invited.

Thus far, Republicans who have announced their intention to seek the party’s nomination for that post in the 2020 primary include Nye County Commissioner Leo Blundo, former Nevada Assemblyman Jim Marchant, former pageant queen and entrepreneur Lisa Song-Sutton, businessman Sam Peters, businesswoman Randi Reed, nurse Catherine Prato, Navy veteran Charles Navarro and businesswoman Rebecca Wood.

Advance tickets are now on sale, but in order to get the discount associated with purchasing ahead of time, attendees must buy their tickets soon. Advance tickets can be purchased for $70 per person at www.eventbrite.com, where you would search “NCRCC Reagan Dinner.” The discounted pre-sale price will be offered until Sunday, Oct. 6.
