One political cycle ends and the next one begins.
The Wake County Republican Party has set their precinct meetings for Tuesday Feb., 19th at the Exposition Center at the State Fairgrounds. Doors open at 5 p.m. With precinct business beginning at 6 p.m. No speaker has yet been announced.
Meanwhile, the Wake County Democratic Party has scheduled their annual Valentine's Day Fundraiser for Friday Feb. 15 at The Royal Banquet and Conference Center at 3801 Hillsborough St. The price of the event ranges from $100 to $1,000.
“Every election is a test our strength as a party, but the 2012 election also serves as a test of our resolve,” write Dan Blue III, Wake County Democratic Party chairman and state Sen. Josh Stein, the event's fund raising chairman.
“Our strength can be measured by our ability to turn out voters to elect democrats,'' they write. “Our resolve is measured by our commitment to endure and prevail even when the lines are drawn against us.''
