The Kern Republican Party is welcoming Texas Congressman and war hero Dan Crenshaw to Kern County for their annual "Lincoln Day" dinner and fundraiser this week.

Crenshaw is a former Navy Seal deployed five times to Iraq and Afghanistan, losing an eye during an IED blast. Organizers say the Texas Congressman will attend the dinner thanks to the efforts of Congressman Kevin McCarthy and the Kern Republican Party.

The Lincoln Day dinner will be held on Friday, February 22 at the Marriott Hotel starting at 6 p.m., followed by a VIP reception at the tower.
