Republican Party opens office in Wilmington

The Republican Party now has a local headquarters. Chris Dean, NHC Republican Party Chairman, said, "We have bumper stickers signs and things like that to take home and we want to meet you all." The office is located at 3145 Wrightsville Ave. in Wilmington. The Republican Party held a mini-celebration for today's grand opening. North Carolina party chair Linda Daves was the keynote speaker at the event. The new office was made possible by donations from supporters. It will serve as a place for people to volunteer, and pick up signs and bumper stickers. Republican Meghin Gear said, "I think it's important to open an office in Wilmington. All the college kids are swaying more to the Democratic side for Barack Obama because he's a minority in the aspect of everything. I think it's good to show that Republicans can stand and be just as strong as everyone else and that John McCain should be there for next presidency." Offices also opened today in Fayetteville and Greenville. The Republican headquarters in Wilmington is open seven days a week. If you would like more information, you can call the headquarters at 910-251-8493.
