Former US Attorney General to Visit Le Mars
August 20, 2019 11:45am
Former US Attorney General Matthew Whitaker will visit Le Mars at a Republican fundraiser hosted by the Plymouth County Central Republican Committee. Whitaker will be at the Plymouth County Tailgate Fundraiser Thursday, September 5. Plymouth County Central Republican Committee Co-Chair Shelley Stabe says that not is Whitaker in the national spotlight, he’s an Iowa native with pretty good credentials including a stint in football which allowed him to play in the Rose Bowl under coach Hayden Frye.
The fundraiser begins at 5:30 with a social hour; Stabe is hoping Whitaker will be able to attend that to meet and greet those in attendance. A dinner will be served and a small silent auction will take place. At the conclusion of the dinner, Whitaker will give his keynote address.
Whitaker served as US Attorney General under President Donald Trump between Attorneys General Jeff Sessions and current AG William Baar. Whitaker will become the managing director of Kansas City-based consulting firm, Clout Public Affairs.
According to Stabe, this is the second Plymouth County Tailgate Fundraiser. The first tailgate featured former Trump Administrator Sam Clovis. Stabe hopes to increase the number of people attending this year’s event to at least 150 people. Funds raised at the tailgate are distributed to GOP candidates, no matter what level. Last year, Stabe says they contributed to the Reynolds campaign as well as a couple individuals running for local offices.

You can also call 712-318-1705, or go to their Facebook page. The event will be held in Le Mars at the Willow Creek Golf Course.
