For those unfamiliar with Mulvaney, he served as US House District 5 Representative from 2011-2017. He left the post after being confirmed as Office of Management and Budget Director in February 2017. He was named acting White House Chief of Staff from January 2019 to March 2020. He then served as the US Special Envoy for Northern Ireland from March 2020 until January 2021, resigning following the protests and storming of the capitol on January 6.
McAbee said after selling out this year’s event, he hopes they can hold it in an even larger venue next year, such as the National Guard Armory. He thanked everyone for their support in buying the tickets and said he looks forward to a great event Friday night.
