Racine County Republican Party Welcomes Elected Officials and Candidates

Racine County GOP will be hosting elected officials and candidates at our County Fair Tent

Once again the Racine County Republican Party will have a large showing at the County Fair.  The tent is located just inside Gate 5 and will host a variety of elected officials and candidates for office the entire weekend.

"This year people were calling or emailing daily asking how they could get involved and if they could volunteer at the fair.  People are motivated to see Racine and Wisconsin turn 'Red' this year," stated Kevin Cronin, GOP board member and this year's County Fair Coordinator.  "Candidates for office and elected officials will be here nearly the whole time and we welcome them all."
