Steamboat Springs — Routt County Republicans will be meeting for their annual Lincoln Day luncheon from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Haymaker Golf Course in Steamboat Springs.
The event will be headlined by U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, and a host of other candidates for public office also will have a chance to speak.
"We'll have pretty significant panel of speakers," said Routt County Republicans Chairwoman Tina Kyprios.
Colorado governor candidates Mike Kopp and Tom Tancredo will be attending, Kyprios said, and local candidates Dave Moloney and Chuck McConnell also will speak. Moloney and McConnell are facing off for the Republican nomination for House District 26, which will be the only primary race for Routt County voters.
"It's an opportunity for all candidates to give a speech," Kyprios said.
Colorado Republican Party Chairman Ryan Call also will be attending the event.
Tickets to the event are $35 and can be purchased at the door.
