The Washington County Federated Republican Women (WCFRW) announce their 2nd Annual Chili Cook Off on Saturday, Jan. 27, at noon at the Jonesborough (TN) Visitors Center featuring nationally known speaker and author Carol M. Swain, PhD. The WCFRW Chili Cook Off is a heated competition to determine the area’s best chili cook. Many local politicians vie for the best chili title, but any interested chili chefs are encouraged to enter.
In addition to enjoying homemade chili, salads and desserts, attendees will hear Dr. Swain speak. Afterwards, attendees will have a chance to meet her and purchase a signed and personalized copy of any of her three most recent books, The Adversity of Diversity: How the Supreme Court’s Decision to Remove Race from College Admissions Criteria Will Doom Diversity Programs; Counter Culture Living; and Black Eye for America.
Currently in the national news, Dr. Swain is a former professor of political science and professor of law and is now a sought after cable news contributor, prominent national speaker and best-selling author. She is also a Christian and a conservative. In addition to three Presidential appointments, she is a former Distinguished Senior Fellow for Constitutional Studies with the Texas Public Policy Foundation, having also served on the Tennessee Advisory Committee to the US Civil Rights Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the 1776 Commission.
An award-winning political scientist cited three times by the US Supreme Court, Dr. Swain has authored or edited 11 published books and numerous opinion pieces for the major national publications. Her television appearances include BBC Radio and TV, CSPAN, ABC’S Headline News, CNN, Fox News, Newsmax and more. She is a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and resides in Nashville.
Last year’s WCFRW Chili Cook Off featured speaker Mark Robinson, North Carolina’s Lt. Governor and current North Carolina gubernatorial candidate. Area resident Wayne Williams won the first place blue ribbon for his chili entry last year, while the tie for second place went to Washington County Sheriff Keith Sexton and Washington County Mayor Joe Grandy.
