Spokane County Republicans invite conservative pundit Tomi Lahren to speak

February 16, 2017

Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren will headline the Spokane County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day dinner this summer, the party announced this week.

Lahren, 24, has become the young face of the Republican revival with her show on Glenn Beck’s streaming service BlazeTV. Her segments targeting Democrats and showing support for President Donald Trump filled Facebook news feeds throughout the election cycle and inspired political opponents to share their own videos attacking her points.

In a statement, Stephanie Cates, chairwoman of the Spokane County GOP, said she believed Lahren’s appearance would smash the event’s attendance record, set last year with an appearance by conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

Tickets for the event, which will be had at the Davenport Grand Hotel, go on sale Feb. 21.
