Earlier this week we broadcast the address United States Senator Ted Stevens made before the Alaska State Legislature. Tonight we will air the presentation he made at the Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner.
Lincoln Day Dinners are celebrated in every state in the country to commemorate the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, America's first Republican president. Juneau's Lincoln Day Dinner was held at the Baranof Hotel on Tuesday, February 19th.
We thought it would be interesting for Alaskans to hear the Senator's speech in front of his supporters and friends in Alaska's capital city.
The program will be broadcast tonight, Thursday February 21, at 8 pm or immediately following the House Open Caucus coverage if it runs past 8 pm. We will repeat the Lincoln Day Dinner speech at 11 pm.
