Olathe Picnic: June 27, 2009 at 10:00 a.m.
Republican stars US Sen. Sam Brownback and US Rep. Todd Tiahrt, and keynote speaker KMBZ talkshow host Darla Jaye among others will speak at the Olathe Republican Party annual Picnic and Straw Poll June 27 at the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop in Olathe. The family-friendly event features a hotdog and hamburger picnic with informational booths from political candidates and organizations as well as speeches from local legislators and candidates for statewide and congressional offices.
Attendees will be able to cast their votes for the 2010 US Senate, Secretary of State, and 3rd Congressional District races as well as their preference for the 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate in the $2 straw poll. Only one vote per person.
Besides Brownback and Tiahrt, confirmed speakers include both secretary of state candidates, Kris Kobach and JR Claeys, and both 3rd District Congressional candidates, Macie Houston and Daniel Gilyeat. Many may recognize Gilyeat as the Iraqi war veteran who was given a new home through Extreme Home Makeovers.
