ST. GEORGE — What could President Bill Clinton’s closest friend and political adviser have to say to the Republicans of Washington County? The community has the chance to find out over dinner at this year’s annual Lincoln Day event.
The Washington County Republican Party and the Sunshine Caucus are sponsoring this year’s Lincoln Day event featuring political insider, adviser and commentator Dick Morris.
The Lincoln Day Dinner will be held Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Dixie Center St. George.
Morris is an American political author and conservative commentator who previously worked as a pollster, political campaign consultant and general political consultant. After two decades as one of Clinton’s closest friends and advisers, Morris switched to the Republican Party and had a regular feature on Fox News.
The Washington County Republican Party invited him to headline the annual Lincoln Day event to discuss his conservative political views and insider observations. Come listen to current political thoughts from the man who helped Clinton get elected and then railed against Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
“Message is more important than money. … Substance is more salient than scandal. Issues are more powerful than image, and strategy more important than spin,” Morris said in his new book, “The New Prince: Machiavelli Updated for the 21st Century.”
The Lincoln Day event is an annual gathering for the Washington County Republican Party to inspire party members and celebrate republican values. This event is traditionally held in the middle of February, close to President’s Day and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on Feb. 12, since Lincoln was the first Republican president of the United States.
