100 attend opening of county's new GOP HQ

It was a dark and stormy night, but just shy of 100 Republicans came out Thursday to celebrate the opening of the new campaign headquarters of the Republican Party of Racine County.

Bill Folk, county chairman, said it was a successful party and many signed up to volunteer. Most had gone home by a few minutes after 9 p.m. when I arrived, no doubt to watch Sen. John McCain's acceptance speech on bigger TVs than the computer screens we stragglers employed. But Fred Dooley kindly supplied the picture above, taken earlier in the evening.

The office is at 6500 Washington Avenue, Suite 300 -- in the same building as Century Floors and Havahart Pets. It will serve as a central location for signs, literature, phone banks and information on the upcoming election.
