Former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will attend the joint 2022 Lincoln Day Dinner with the Peoria and Tazewell County Republican Central Committees as a keynote speaker and special guest. The event will take place Monday at the Peoria Civic Center ballroom, 201 SW Jefferson St. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m.
“(U.S. President Joe Biden and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s) radical left agenda are leading Illinois and America down a path of decay and decline,” Pence stated last month in a news release from U.S. Rep. (IL-.18th) Darin LaHood “With conservative leaders like Darin LaHood and Esther Joy King in Congress, we can restore American energy independence, reestablish strong American leadership, and revive the economy that was the strongest in American history during the Trump-Pence administration. I look forward to joining Peoria and Tazewell conservatives to discuss our shared vision for the future of Illinois.”

According to LaHood, the Peoria-Tazewell Lincoln Day Dinner is one of the largest events in Illinois Republican politics, with Republican activists, leaders, officeholders and prospective candidates from across Illinois coming to speak to voters.
“Vice President Mike Pence is a conservative champion who has been on the frontlines to defend our Midwest values and promote Republican candidates across the country,” said LaHood. “I am honored that he will join us as the keynote speaker for the 2022 Peoria-Tazewell Lincoln Day dinner.”
Past guests at Peoria and Tazewell County Lincoln Day dinners have included U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio, 4th District), former Secretary of Energy and former Texas governor Rick Perry, Republican National Committee National Finance Chair Todd Ricketts, and former Secretary of the Interior and U.S. Rep.
