The Wake County Democratic Party is hosting a Patriotic Rally and Chili Cook-Off


Featuring special guest speaker, former Marine Captain, Jon Kuniholm. Jon was injured in Iraq while serving as a platoon leader in a battalion of as few as 650 marines, who were trying to gain control of areas overrun with insurgents. You may have seen Jon speak at Invesco Field in Denver just a few hours before Barack Obama's acceptance speech.

We are all very excited to have Jon Kuniholm join us and are looking forward to hearing why he and many other soldiers support Barack Obama for President.

Jerry Meek, NCDP Chair, and Senator Walter Dalton, candidate for Lt. Governor are also expected to make an appearance.

So grab your friends and family and join us as we look forward to Victory in November. But before you come, be sure to whip up a batch of chili for our cook-off! We are still on the hunt for more chili chefs to share their recipes. Currently, all of our Democratic clubs have entered, we even get to taste Barack Obama's special chili! It's FREE to enter.
