SARASOTA — Former Vice President Dick Cheney is returning to Sarasota for an event in October.
Cheney will be recognized as the Sarasota GOP’s “Statesman of the Year” during a dinner at the Westin Hotel. Cheney’s daughter, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, also will be honored as the local GOP’s first “Stateswoman of the Year.”
Sarasota GOP Chair Joe Gruters said in a press release that the Cheneys “represent the traditional, conservative values our Party stands for.”
