Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Nitra Barnes, President of the Lubbock Area Republican Women (LARW) joined guest host Steve Evans in the KFYO studio to provide lots of exciting information about their upcoming state-wide convention for the Texas Federation of Republican Women.

The convention begins Wednesday, November 4th with the LARW golf tournament at the Rawls Course, and continues through Saturday November 7th with the President's Dinner at Silent Wings Museum. The complete convention schedule is available here.

The convention is not just for women: Men and young adults strongly encouraged to attend this fantastic gathering, meet candidates, and listen to many speakers. Candidate and vendor booths are available, as well as event sponsorships, and many speakers are being lined up. U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz will be a keynote speaker, as well as U.S. Senator John Cornyn. Among other speakers currently being negotiated are presidential candidates Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee.

Also on the schedule are Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen, who were members of the contract security team during the attack in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the murder of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Geist and Tiegen's presentation will include video, and they will talk about their experiences during the attack, detailing what actually happened.

About the Benghazi survivor's presentation Barnes said,

It is, it's unreal. You can't hear it without being changed, it's unbelievable.
