The Napa County GOP (a.k.a. Republican Party) hosted a wonderful event on Saturday, June 8 at the Napa Valley College PAC Auditorium. This event featured two speakers, Indian immigrant to America Dinesh D’Souza and out-of- the-closet gay male Brandon Straka. The venue was sold out.

A last-minute surprise occurred when the Star Spangled Banner was led by Taiwanese immigrant Peter Kuo. He played the exact same violin he wore on his back when first coming to the United States in 1982. Peter is also the new vice chair for the California Republican Party.

Also in attendance was Tamika Hamilton, an African American Republican woman running for Congress in California’s 3rd District.
