WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — National Rifle Association President Oliver North made a stop in Monticello Saturday evening.

North, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, was the keynote speaker at this year's White County Republican Lincoln Dinner. More than 500 people listened as North discussed issues facing the nation.

The freedom to have guns in the U.S., abortion laws and the upcoming presidential election were among the topics. Congressman Jim Baird said this was a treat for local Republicans.

“It's always good to have our republican people have the chance to visit with him and talk about the things that he's concerned about,” said Baird.

North became the 66th NRA President in 2018.

On Saturday, he donated $500 to the White County GOP. Twenty-one audience members agreed to match that check in support of the party.
