Tickets are still available for Friday’s Lincoln Day Dinner.
The annual fundraiser for the Kern County Republican Party is happening at the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Bakersfield.
The special guest this year is Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, a retired Navy Seal.
Crenshaw made headlines for an appearance on Saturday Night Live after a joke was made about Crenshaw’s use of an eyepatch.
Crenshaw accepted an apology on the show and called for unity during the heated midterm elections.
Even after losing his eye in 2012, he deployed two more times before retiring and successfully running for congress.
