SD 33 Republicans: party animals

Lake Minnetonka calls!The Republicans in Senate District 33 (mostly those little areas around the nooks and crannies of Lake Minnetonka), are putting the "party" into "Republican Party" this month and next. Make that party building.

A week from Sunday, on August 19, the district is hosting a flotilla on Lake Minnetonka, BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat) or hitch a ride on one of theirs. SD 33 Republicans Sen. Gen Olson and Reps. Steve Smith and John Berns will be aboard.

On Friday, September 28, SD 33 hosts its first annual casino night fundraiser at the venerable Gold Coast institution, the Lafayette Club. The afternoon will feature a high-roller Texas Hold 'Em tournament, with an evening live auction featuring auctioneer (and governor) Tim Pawlenty.

With such active fundraising and party building social events, no wonder SD 33 is a deep red Republican district (in a tough year for Republicans, Berns kept former Rep. Barb Sykora's seat in the Republican caucus by winning his 2006 election by eleven points).

See the SD 33 web site for details.
