Hughes County Lincoln Day Dinner

Just a few photos from the Hughes County Lincoln Day Dinner:



After the county honored Don Rounds, as the Hughes County volunteer of the year, Matt Michels, the speaker of the night got up and gave a speech about liberty and Republican values.

He also had us on the edge our seats with this one. (mp3 file)

I was fortunate to sit at a table with longtime lobbyist *the* Jeremiah Murphy. He introduced himself, as did I. And upon hearing my name he apologized, as he noted "I should have introduced myself as anonymous." (good one.)

Also at the table was his son and fellow lobbyist Jerry Murphy, Representative Cooper Garnos, and equally notable Republicans in the form of Brown County GOP Chairman Isaac Latterell, (SDWC reader and) GOP activist Aaron Lorenzen, and South Dakota Right to Life Lobbyist Jenna Haeger:

I'll have more on the Michels speech as I get through it (probably early next week) and reduce the file size.

But let it be said that a good time was had by all.

Everyone should listen to the snipet by Michels, it's a good one, he hasn't lost his sense of humor.

Jerry Murphy Sr. is a Dem., isn't he?

A good lobbyist brown-noses everyone. And I see Sen."where did he come from" Gray is still ass kissing everyone in the administration.

Michels is a good man and would be an excellent governor for South Dakota. I hope he continues to get out there.

With Daugaard and Michels, GOP has an embarrassment of riches for 2010. Two solid, well-respected, smart guys. Come to think of it - that would be a hell of a ticket.

I have known Matt Michels for years and he would be a great candidate for any office, but the State of South Dakota would be blessed to have him in the Governor's office in 2011. As people begin to look at candidates, he has a background that will grab attention and I hope he is the next Governor. Interestingly, Yankton isn't overly politically active, but if Matt is the GOP candidate in 2010, three out of four elections will have had a Yanktonian in the Gubernatorial race.

Jeremiah D and Jeremiah M are both as republican as you can get.

Matt Michels would be a great Governor. We could use a class act like him in the Mansion. He is smart and has a really diverse background which would lend him to leading this great State of South Dakota. Go Matt!!!!!!!!!!
