    October 2019 Pints & Politics

    Pints-and-Politics-1.jpgThe monthly social networking and happy hour event for Republicans called Pints & Politics is on tap for mid-October.

    The Southwest Metropolitan Pints & Politics will again be held on the second Monday, October 14, at Poor Richard’s Commonhouse, 8301 Normandale Blvd, Bloomington.

    Senate Districts 46, 48, 49, and 50 will co-host this event, bringing together Republicans from Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, Golden Valley, Hopkins, Medicine Lake, Plymouth, Richfield, and Saint Louis Park.

    All Republican candidates in the area are urged to come and bring campaign signs and literature.  We have enjoyed stops by Ryan Kulka and Yvette Baudelaire, candidates for mayor in Bloomington and Saint Louis Park, as well as city council candidates including Joe Israel (Saint Louis Park) and Al Noard and Sue Woodruff (Bloomington).

    We promise you, no speeches.  Rather, you will have a great opportunity to talk about plans, issues, and opportunities to get involved.

    We hold Pints & Politics on the second Monday of every month. You can look forward to meeting a lot of great people. This is the place to greet old friends and meet new ones.

    Come as early as 5 pm to enjoy happy hour prices. Or drop in up to 7:30 pm, as many of us will still be there. Have a beer and talk one-on-one with state party officers, local party leaders, and a number of genuinely good people.

    Scroll down to register in advance. You can now register early for $7 on-line to help defray the cost of a selection of appetizers. Or pay $10 at the door (cash or check). Credit cards cannot be accepted at the door. 

    Bring a friend!

    Senate District 49 Republicans will have the opportunity on Tuesday evening, October22, to hear from Willis Krumholz.  Join us on October 22 in the Fellowship Hall of the Calvary Lutheran Church, 6817 Antrim Rd, Edina, MN 55439.

    Fall Conversation with Kendall Qualls & Lacy Johnson


    2020 will be a monumental year in politics in Minnesota. The Presidential race is garnering the most attention, but Congressional races could well prove pivotal in determining the future direction of the country. What will it take for Republican candidates for Congress to successfully run in the Minneapolis metropolitan area?

    Our annual “Fall Conversation” will take place on Friday, November 22.  It will probe the challenges and opportunities in running for Congress in our area. Kendall Qualls and Lacy Johnson will give us their thoughts and answer our questions. Both are seeking endorsement in their Congressional districts, and both bring inspiring life stories and motivating enthusiasm to their campaigns.

    Kendall Qualls is running for Congress in Congressional District 3. He is a U.S. Army Veteran, healthcare executive, and community volunteer. He has described himself as going from ghetto kid and trailer trash to a veteran, businessman, husband, and father. Qualls is the executive vice president with PotentiaMetrics, an Austin, Texas-based data analytics company

    Lacy Johnson is running for Congress in Congressional District 5. Starting in engineering, systems development, and project management, Lacy has gone on to found three small businesses dedicated to the economic development, technology training, and education within inner city communities. He has been married to his wife Betty and a resident of North Minneapolis for over 40 years.

    Max Rymer will again moderate the conversation. He is host of the Republican Roundtable with a unique perspective on politics. Under Max’s guidance, our guests will share their thoughts and field your questions. Expect a lively and interactive discussion.

    Our “Fall Conversation” fundraiser includes a social hour starting at 6:30 pm at the Edina Country Club. Doors open at 6:15 pm. Scroll down to buy tickets for this event and be a part of the Conversation.
