Richard Morton, 2nd Vice-Chairman for the Shelby County Young Republicans, has filed a petition to run in a special election for State House District 92. He is the only Republican running in the race, and he will face Democrat G.A. Hardaway for the special election, which will be held on Tuesday, March 13th. The Shelby County Young Republicans are playing a vital role in helping Richard with his campaign!

The Tennessee Young Republican Federation will provide campaign help to Richard Morton on Saturday, March 3rd in Memphis. This weekend we will try to get YRs in the Memphis area and outside the Memphis area to knock on doors, make phone calls, etc.  Campaigning should start around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday morning and last most of the afternoon. Shelby County YR Paul Boyd will bring breakfast to volunteers, plus he has coordinated BBQ lunch for YRs near the campaign area.

All YRs interested in helping Richard need to meet at 9:30 a.m. at 426 Lytle in Memphis. Below will be a Mapquest link to show you how to get to the Lytle address. YRs will campaign through about 4 p.m. on Saturday. The campaign will try to hit all 2,000 Republican targeted households in the state house district on Saturday. We need your help! Call Paul at (901) 849-2468 or Richard at (901) 486-1909 for more information. Richard’s campaign web site is http://www.richardmorton.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
