Keynote Speaker will be former Member of Congress Artur Davis.
In 2012, Davis formally joined the Republican Party, and served as an active surrogate for the party and the Romney for President campaign; including a Prime Time Speaking spot at the RNC.
Artur Davis, an honors graduate of Harvard University and Harvard Law School, began his career in public service as a highly successful federal prosecutor, winning convictions in nearly 100 percent of his cases. He represented the 7th District of Alabama for eight years in the United States House of Representatives, from 2003 to 2010, where he earned recognition as an independent minded, conservative Democrat who regularly broke ranks with his party on economic, social and national security issues. At the same time, he was regarded as an accomplished and successful legislator, who was named one of the 10 Outstanding Congressmen by Esquire Magazine in 2008 and was a repeat winner of the Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Award. In 2010, after an unsuccessful race for the governorship of Alabama, Davis relocated to Virginia and entered the private sector, where he currently serves on the board of directors of Huntingdon Ingalls Industries. In 2012, Davis formally joined the Republican Party, and served as an active surrogate for the party and the Romney for President campaign. He continues to be a much sought after speaker, runs his own blog analyzing public issues, and has been published in leading conservative journals, including National Review and Commentary.

HAMILTON COUNTY ROMNEY/RYAN HEADQUARTERS is now up and running! They are located at 6227 Lee Highway, Suite B, Chattanooga and will be open Monday – Saturday 9am – 9pm.
There have been several small changes to the Hamilton County GOP Bylaws. Please review the current bylaws by clicking here.
Hamilton County Republicans have lost a great ally, worker, strategist and friend in the passing of Charlie Peavyhouse. Anyone involved in seeking political office in one the last several decades understand the magnitude of this stalwart’s departure from this life.
Fortunately, a number of Republican faithful were able to gather to pay “Peavy” the homage he truly deserved for his loyalty and service to his beloved Republican Party. Many, or most, who were present had somehow been touched, befriended, helped, advised, supported or catipulted by one Charlie Peavyhouse.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife Eula who we lift up in thought and prayer during this time of loss. Though Charlie has succumbed to this life, we are confident that all of his pain is now passed and he is enjoying the labors of his faith and earthly work as he enters the presence of his Savior.
Rest well, in grace and peace old warrior, until we meet again.
Marty Von Schaaf, Chairman
