Bryant Pond, Maine (August 6, 2014)
Tucker Carlson, Co-host of Fox and Friends, panelist on Special Report, and editor-in-Chief of TheDailyCaller.com was the guest speaker at an event sponsored by the Woodstock Republican Committee at the Whitman Memorial Library on Wednesday, August 8. During his talk, What to Expect in Politics, Mr. Carlson spoke about the changing demographics of the voting population, how it will affect elections in the coming years, and what candidates and parties should consider when appealing to voters. He also touched upon possible contenders in the 2016 Presidential election and reviewed some of the advantages and disadvantages of potential candidates.

Mr. Carlson is an engaging and informative speaker and, following his remarks, he took questions from the audience for about 45 minutes. These questions touched on such topics as Sgt. Tamooressi’s imprisonment in Mexico, questions about specific candidates he has interviewed, some of his colleagues at Fox News, and his views on the balance of power in the Supreme Court.

The event was open to registered Republicans and their invited guests with registration by RSVP. Those who were in attendance at the sold-out event had the opportunity to listen and question someone who has had direct access to the government officials who make the decisions that affect the country. Following the presentation, many remarked that they felt a renewed interest in becoming involved in their town and county Republican committees. Information on the Oxford County Republican Committee is available at www.OxfordCountyGOP.org and on their Facebook page.

Also in attendance were several candidates running for state offices: Terrence L. Magee, a candidate for the House of Representatives in District 115; Fran Head, a candidate for the House of Representatives in District 117; and Joe Martin, a candidate for the Maine Senate District 18.

The Woodstock Republican Committee is deeply grateful to Mr. Carlton for his contribution of time and energy in making this event a success. The Committee also wishes to thank David Conary for his assistance in scheduling the event, Diane Dupuis for her assistance in coordinating and maintaining the guest list, and Jen Collard for her photography.
