Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Allen B. West is a Christian constitutional conservative, combat veteran, and former Member of the US Congress.

In July 2019, West announced his bid for the chairman's position of the Republican Party of Texas in 2020. He is a frequent guest on Fox News.

His life has been defined as one of service, sacrifice, and commitment to this Republic, the United States of America, coordinators of the event stated in a press release.

He believes it will be conservative, free market policies, not politics that secures a sound economic future for Americans – with growth, opportunity and returning the promise of the American dream for this generation and those to come.

“This event is going to be fun, celebrate America and raise money for all of our Republican candidates to KEEP BURNET COUNTY RED in 2020”, said Londa Chandler, President of the Burnet County Republican Club.
