LUMBERTON — The Robeson County Republican Party will hold a rally on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bill Sapp Recreation Center for people who might be interested in joining the party.
According to David Edge, the only Republican on the eight-member Robeson County Board of Commissioners, the local party is seeking to get Democrats who are unhappy with their party’s “no-God, same-sex marriage platform” to switch to the Republican Party or unaffiliated.
A magician, Joel Givens, will perform during the event, which is themed “Experience the Magic of the Republican Party.” There will be free hot dogs and drinks. Donations of $25 for adults or $5 for children are encouraged.
For information, call Edge at 910-258-1166 or Phillip Stephens, chairman of the county Republican Party, at 910-740-0493.
