Custer County Holds Standing Room Only Event
By Mack Miller

The Custer County Democrats held their first fundraiser tonite. The banquet room at the Mark Restauarant in Weatherford had standing room only.
Additional chairs were brought in, the room was full and people were standing.

Lt. Governor Candidates Senator Cal Hobson and Representative Jari Askins were present and allowed to speak. Also present was a representative from State Auditor Jeff McMahan's campaign, Tony Wilson (campaign manager for CD3 congressional candidate Greg Wilson), Senate District 38 Candidate Josh Woods, Senator Gilmer and Wanda Capps, and State Representative James and Yvonne Covey.

Featured speaker Frosty Troy was great as usual, bringing himself to tears once during his speech. Frosty even took questions at the end. The great `tell it like it is' speaker drew 2 standing ovations. He urged all Democrats to stand up and be proud to be Democrats. Frosty said he had spoke recently to a group of Young Republicans. "They must have wanted to hear the truth for a change," said Frosty. He told the Republicans present, "I will speak slowly so you can all understand what I am saying". Senator Hobson admitted he had made Frosty's list of the `5 worst senators' once.

Congratulations to Custer County Democratic Party officers for a VERY successful fundraiser tonight!
