"I am buoyed and humbled by the excitement and support for my campaign," said Koster. "We are less than a year away from the most important election of our lifetimes and the event last night demonstrated that my supporters are prepared for the coming battle for the heart and soul of America."
Koster welcomed special guest Michael Reagan, the keynote speaker for the event. Reagan, son of former President Ronald Reagan, told the crowd that he eagerly endorsed John Koster "because our country needs leaders like John, a dairy farmer, who will stand up for working families."
Reagan encouraged the crowd to preserve liberty by supporting John Koster for Congress. "Liberals are working everyday to destroy liberty. We must work just as hard as they do to preserve it," said Reagan.
Other speakers included Kirby Wilbur, Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party. Wilbur said "John Koster represents the best chance Washington State Republicans have to pick up a seat in the Congress in 2012."
Koster, who announced his candidacy for Congress earlier this year, has established a goal of raising $250,000 by the end of the year. "In order to defeat a well funded Democrat, my campaign will need support from thousands of people in Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom and Island Counties. The dinner last night with a packed house of enthusiastic supporters demonstrates that the support is there," said Koster.
Among the many special guests at the Christmas dinner and fundraiser for John Koster were David Boze, talk radio host at KTTH 770, Dino Rossi, former Republican candidate for Governor and U.S. Senate, Rob McKenna, Attorney General and Republican candidate for Governor, Clint Didier, former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, State Senator Val Stevens, Eileen Sobjack, President of the Washington Federation of Republican Women, Jeff Kent, Washington State Republican National Committeeman, Dr. Ken Hutcherson, Pastor of Antioch Bible Church, and several current and former state legislators who served with Koster in the State House.
