PRESTON, ID – The Republican Party of Franklin County has announced that their annual Lincoln Day event, originally scheduled for Feb. 16, has been postponed.

That event – which traditionally features a dinner – had been changed to a gala centered on guest speaker Glenn Beck at the Dahle Performing Arts in Dayton.

“Due to an unexpected situation in Glenn’s immediate family,” according to Franklin County GOP chair Todd Thomas, “the Lincoln Day event … will have to be rescheduled for 7 p.m. on Mar. 28.”

Thomas also confirms that all tickets already sold for the GOP gathering are still valid and additional tickets are available, although they are selling out at a steady pace.

Thomas suggests that anyone interest in obtaining tickets for the event on Mar. 28 should contact any Franklin County precinct chair.

Beck is a local celebrity in Franklin County, where he owns a cattle ranch.

Beck is a best-selling author and longtime political commentator who presented conservative views and values through podcasts, radio and television broadcasts. Most recently, he is heard on his own radio and TV network, TheBlaze.

Thomas said that Beck’s speech at the rescheduled Lincoln Day event will be a celebration of long-cherished conservative values and American history, not as an endorsement of any particular political candidate.

Thomas added that the rescheduled event will be at the location, that is, the Dahle Center in Dayton at 7 p.m. on Mar. 28.

Ticket for the event are $20 per person or $35 per couple. That entry fee includes one raffle ticket for an American flag, with additional raffle tickets available at the door of $10 each.
