Invitations were received this week for the Thursday kick-off reception for a certain candidate for Governor. The kick-off will be held in Knoxville at The Foundry. The cost will prohibit those everyday Republican volunteers/activists from attending and being a part of the kick-off. Because the cost is $1,000.00 per person. Also, you can write a check or better yet you can put it on your VISA, MasterCard or American Express. Oh, and by the way the money isn't going to be deposited into a Knoxville bank as the address for your contribution is located in Franklin, TN even though the Treasurer and the Candidate both reside in Knoxville, TN.
