Sangamon County Republicans have landed a big name for their annual Lincoln Day event.
Doctor Ben Carson will be the keynote speaker. Carson is a renowned pediatric neurosurgeon who has now become a popular speaker on conservative causes… after his pointed comments about health care, taxes and other issues during the National Prayer Breakfast last February, as President Obama sat just a few feet away.
The dinner featuring Carson will be held on Tuesday evening, February 11th at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. Tickets are available online at bencarsonlincolnday.com.
