The Rockdale Republican Party along with Clayton, Fulton, Gwinnett, Newton, and Walton Republican parties will be hosting "A Taste of Conservatism" on April 10 at the Georgia Veterans Memorial at Black Shoals Park in Rockdale. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the first of nearly 30 Republican candidates starting at noon.
The concept behind this event is to bring as many of the Republican candidates to a central location and give voters in Rockdale and surrounding counties a chance to learn about their possible choices before the primaries on July 20.
Candidates so far include Gary Black, Sen. John Douglas, Harold Logsdon, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, Melvin Everson, Ray McBerry, Darwin Carter, Karen Handel, Stephen Northington, Liz Carter, Roger Hines, Sam Olen, Sen. Jeff Chapman, Sen. Johnny Isakson, John Oxendine, Kathy Cox, Sen. Eric Johnson, Gerry Purcell, Rep. Nathan Deal and Cory Ruth
In addition to political speeches and voter registration, the Rockdale GOP will also be collecting books for Operation Paperback, which sends books worldwide to active military and to veteran’s hospitals, and places like USO transit points. In December, the Rockdale Republican party collected nearly 3,000 books and aims to collect 25,000 books by July 2.
