Iowa US Senator Joni Ernst will be the featured speaker Tuesday night at the 9th Annual Ronald Reagan Dinner sponsored by the Scott County Republican Party. It's a major fundraiser for the party, and proceeds each year support local candidates and their campaigns.

Other speakers will include Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg, Iowa Senate President Jack Whitver, State Auditor Mary Mosiman, Secretary of State Paul Pate, and state GOP Chair Jeff Kaufmann.

Doors open at 5 pm, at the Waterfront Convention Center in downtown Bettendorf. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
