New York Young Republican Club Announces Sarah Palin as the Special Guest for Their 108th Annual Gala
On July 27, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club announced that former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker for the New York Young Republican Club’s 108th Annual Gala.
The gala will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 7pm, at Landmark on the Park (160 Central Park West).
The program will feature a cocktail reception, an awards ceremony, State of the Club address, and a three-course seated dinner.
In an email, the group said the following about Palin:
Governor Sarah Palin, history-making woman leader, GOP kingmaker and beloved “Mama Grizzly,” Governor Palin’s maverick personality, spot-on political instincts and deep connection with “the silent majority” of American voters have made her one of the most influential women in conservative politics. As one of the earliest endorsers of President Trump, Governor Palin injected vital support and game-changing momentum at a critical juncture in the battle for the Republican nomination.
Palin has been a conservative firebrand that gets conservative voters fired up, which the Republican organization highlighted:
Today, Governor Palin continues to fight for the millions of Americans that are often overlooked by Washington and the mainstream media. Drawing full houses and standing-room-only crowds, Sarah Palin calls upon all Americans—of all political persuasions and beliefs—to get motivated, get involved and join together to build a brighter future. Known for her meteoric rise from first female (and youngest) Governor of Alaska to first woman on the GOP presidential ticket, Governor Palin has captured hearts and minds around the world with her outspoken honesty, fearless principles and passionate personality. Recognized as one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential People” and Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women,” Governor Palin is also one of only 21 women on Smithsonian’s “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time” list.
Palin has been a kingmaker of sorts through her political action committee, SarahPAC. Her endorsement and the support coming from her PAC are “considered the gold standard for conservative candidates.”
