    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Each year in February the Washington County Republican Party hosts a fundraising Lincoln Day Breakfast in celebration of Lincoln’s birthday and in recognition of his key role in shaping the early Republican Party. This year’s event will feature Utah’s Lieutenant Governor, Spencer Cox, as the keynote speaker. Reports will be given by Governor Gary Herbert, Senator Mike Lee, Congressman Chris Stewart, State Representative Lowry Snow, and County Commissioner Alan Gardner, among others.

    The Lincoln Day Breakfast will be held in the Dixie State University Gardner Center, 255 South 700 East, St. George on Saturday, February 15. Breakfast service will begin at 7:30 AM. A meet- and-greet with elected officials will begin at 7:45 AM with the formal program set to start promptly at 8:20 AM.

    Tickets may be purchased in advance for $25.00 per person and are available at the main branch of Zions Bank at 40 East St. George Blvd in St. George or by contacting the following individuals: Brent Hall at 435-680-3083 and Todd Jones at 435-229-8379.

    Sponsorships for a table of 8 are available for $300.

    Nick Lang, Chairman of the Washington County Republican Party, said “We are excited to hear from our new Lt. Governor, Spencer Cox. He is young, bright, conservative and because he was born, raised, and lives in Sanpete County he understands issues that we face being off the Wasatch Front.”

    Lt. Governor Cox was appointed by Governor Herbert On October 8, 2013 to replace outgoing Lt. Governor Greg Bell. Cox was previously a State Representative for District 58 in Sanpete County. Gov. Herbert said he chose the 38-year-old Republican because of his intellect, business experience, political record, and rural roots.
