Dignitaries Tour Northwest Florida To Open McCain Victory Headquarters Offices
At about 4:30 Saturday afternoon, things were buzzing around the building at Connors Realty as a crowd of Republican supporters, party officials, and numerous candidates prepared for the arrival of the party "caravan" that was making the rounds of Florida panhandle cities that day. Complete with banners, signs, and refreshments, the event showed our visitors that the "republican spirit" was very much alive and flourishing in Jackson County.
Jackson County Republican Party Chairman Sandy Helms hosted the event which had the Republican Party of Florida Chairman, Jim Greer, as the keynote speaker. Chairman Greer arrived in Marianna accompanied by Republican National Committeewoman Sharon Day and Republican National Committeeman Paul Senft. The prominent trio had started the morning in Pensacola at the grand opening of the Escambia County McCain Victory Headquarters and moved across the Panhandle in an automobile caravan convoy to open other Victory offices.
Addressing a standing room only crowd, Chairman Greer spoke about Senator John McCain’s knowledge and abilities to lead America to a time of peace and prosperity. Representative Marti Coley; local Republican candidates; and Florida House of Representatives District 5 Republican candidate Brad Drake were special guests at the grand opening.
The new McCain Victory Headquarters located at 4389 Lafayette Street, Suite B in Marianna. The Republican Party of Jackson County historically opens a headquarters within 100 days of the General Election.
