Six Republicans running for office in the August Primary Election spoke at the Grundy County Republican Central Committee’s Lincoln Days Luncheon on April 13.

Freddie Griffin Junior of Hamilton is campaigning for the position of United States Representative for District 6. A former resident of Trenton, he criticized incumbent Sam Graves for supporting legislation that involved financial aid to Middle Eastern countries, Africa, and Ukraine.

Griffin admitted his lack of a political track record, given that this is his first election campaign. Nevertheless, he stands firm in his convictions.



Candidates also vying for positions in the Third Judicial Circuit spoke at the event on the same day.

Steven Hudson from Trenton discussed his background, detailing his return to Trenton to establish a legal practice after graduating from the University of Missouri—Kansas City and passing the Missouri bar exam in 1986.



Matt Krohn of Princeton recounted his nearly 28-year legal career. He covered court duties for over a year while Judge Thomas Alley was undergoing cancer treatment. During this period, he also managed circuit law days in Grundy and Putnam counties.



The Lincoln Days Luncheon also featured an auction, presided over by Bill Brinser. The meal was catered by Great Western Dining.
