On the evening of May 16, in Grand Ballroom A of the Duke Energy Convention Center, about 600 local Republicans gathered for the Hamilton County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner.
Many of those in the record-breaking crowd were there to see and hear the keynote speaker, one of the hottest commodities in the still very early battle for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination – Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky.
Some of the people in that room support Paul’s candidacy.
