To The Leader


Campaign 2020 is here. 

Campaign signs are appearing, individual Facebook posts are filled with comments and endorsements of local, state and federal candidates and the Orange County Republican Party is preparing for their 2nd Bi-Annual Republican Gala.

The guest speaker is no stranger to Orange County or its residents. Michael Berry was born in Orange, Texas and has been called the Czar of Talk Radio. He is a graduate of the University of Houston, the University of Texas Law School and the University of Nottingham. 

He served three terms as a City Councilman for the City of Houston and as an outspoken radio host, informs, entertains and on occasion, shocks his listeners on KTRH. 

Orange County looks forward to welcoming one of their own to headline our gala and our other speakers who will include Congressman Brian Babin.

While preparing for the upcoming gala, party members are busy readying the new County Headquarters located at 620 Strickland, directly behind CVS in Orange.
