Nevada, IA – The Republican Party of Story County announced today that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be the keynote speaker for the sixth annual Wendy Jensen Memorial Chili Supper. This will be the second visit to Story County by the Governor of New Jersey. This special event will take place at Gatherings in downtown Nevada on Friday, November 13, 2015 with doors opening at 5:00 p.m.

Governor Christie defeated incumbent Democrat Governor Jon Corzine in 2009 and was overwhelmingly re-elected in 2013. Prior to his election as Governor, Chris Christie served as a US Attorney from 2002-2008. Christie served as the Chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association from 2013-2014. During his tenure, states with Republican Governors increased from 29 to 31, including wins in deep blue states such as Illinois, Maine, and Maryland.

“We are looking forward to Story County voters having a chance to get to know Governor Christie,” said Jeff Ortiz Co-Chairman. “Our Wendy Jensen Memorial Chili Supper is a very special event and we are thankful that Governor Christie will be joining us.”

The dinner is an annual tradition in memory of Wendy Jensen. Wendy selflessly dedicated countless hours volunteering for Republican causes from 2008-2011.

A limited number of early bird tickets for the dinner are available. Tickets will be $25 at the door.
