A pancake and sausage breakfast campaign event will be held Saturday, Feb. 3, at Bunker Hill Fire Company to rally Republican voters in Lebanon County before the April 23 primary election.

Hosted by state Rep. Russ Diamond, the campaign event will give Republican voters an opportunity to sign petitions placing the names of Diamond and other Republican candidates on the Primary ballot.

“This event will likely be the largest gathering of rank and file Republican voters in Lebanon County prior to the Primary Election,” Diamond said in a release on Friday. “Voters will check in, add their signature to a line of petitions, and then enjoy a free pancake and sausage breakfast. Candidates will offer periodic stump speeches to rally the Republican faithful.”

Besides Diamond, attendees will likely include U.S. Congressman Dan Meuser, state Treasurer Stacy Garrity, state Auditor General Tim DeFoor, and state Attorney General candidate Dave Sunday. Petitions will also be on hand for Donald Trump for President, Dave McCormick for U.S. Senate, and candidates for Delegate to the Republican National Convention.

The event runs from 8 to 11 a.m., with peak attendance expected between 8 and 9:30. The fire hall is at 434 S. Lancaster St., Lebanon, just south of the square in Jonestown.

Diamond is currently running for re-election and faces a primary contest from Rachel Moyer, who Diamond said was not invited to this event.

Regarding whether Moyer was invited, Diamond said the event is a cooperative effort between the listed candidates, and not organized by the Republican Party.

”I am footing the bill, so no,” said Diamond.

Watch for future coverage from LebTown of a Moyer campaign event as the two get closer to their primary showdown on April 23.

Editor’s note: This article was updated after publication to clarify that Diamond’s primary challenger Rachel Moyer was not invited to the event. In the spirit of equal air time for candidates, watch for a future article on a Moyer campaign event.
