On the 33rd anniversary of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, his son, Michael Reagan, will be speaking at an event in Murrieta.

Reagan is scheduled to headline a Jan. 20 campaign event for state Assemblyman Brian Nestande in his bid for Congress, according to a news release. The fund-raising luncheon—at a minimum cost of $100 per plate—will take place at Monteleone Meadows in Murrieta.

Nestande, R-Palm Desert, is seeking to unseat Rep. Raul Ruiz, D-Palm Desert in this year’s election for the 36th Congressional District. Riverside County’s 36th District includes Hemet, the San Gorgonio Pass, and the Coachella Valley, stretching to the California-Arizona border.

Reagan, an author and former radio show host, said he is supporting Nestande “because he has the guts to fight for us.”

“The path the Obama Democrats are leading us down is the wrong direction,” Reagan stated. “Brian will fight against big government programs like Obamacare that cripple our economy by limiting job growth. Brian Nestande has committed to me personally that his goal is to get government off the backs of the people who work hard to help their families. That’s why I’m coming to support Brian Nestande.”

Michael Edward Reagan, 68, of Los Angeles, is the adopted son of Ronald Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman. He and his sister Maureen remained with their mother after Reagan and Wyman divorced in 1949, according to a PBS biography, "The Reagan Children."

The luncheon begins at noon at 35245 Briggs Road in Murrieta. Those who would like more information may call 760-610-6060.

Hidell, why are you constantly proving yourself to be a complete moronic ass? Please define “a true son” and without our Military you would not be able to your “moronic ass” self!

SA- well said- Hidell is a real argument for birth control.

Michael has been to our Super Bowl parties a couple of times and is a pretty good guy. I'm sure Alek will enjoy his speech.

Here's who demented Michael Reagan is in a interview with Piers Morgan on CNN. "A Republican strategist and adopted son of former president Ronald Reagan, the 67-year-old was sexually molested by a camp counselor and shares intimate details of the experience: "My abuser taught me how to throw a football, taught me how to throw a baseball, taught me how to do trampoline, taught me how to yo-yo, taught me how to do those things where I could impress my father, make me feel good about myself," he explains. "So he endeared himself to me, and then from that point, it just went to the 'nth' degree." Speaking with tremendous courage and emotion, Reagan goes on to reveal the moment he opened up to the nation's 40th commander-in-chief: "I didn't tell my father, until the occasion of my daughter Ashley's fourth birthday, at the ranch, in 1987," says Reagan. "My dad, I was literally, everything out of my body was coming up on his boots. And my dad said 'Where is he? I'll kick his butt.'" Explaining to Piers Morgan that childhood incidents like the one's he endured can scar individuals well into adulthood, the guest speaks about the great lengths he went to in an attempt to gain a true understanding of himself: "I walked away from God, I walked away from everybody, and I was so unsure of my own sexuality, that when I was 16 years of age, and not sure what people would see me as heterosexual or homosexual, I would steal money from my father's wallet, and go to downtown L.A., and buy prostitutes on Friday and Saturday night, because I had to prove to myself that I was heterosexual and I was a man," he states. "I did not know, and I was afraid to ask." Crazy...YES HE IS.

So Jeff, ever do anything in life that you wish you didn't or maybe something happen that your not real proud of? Guy should get a lot of credit for being so honest. I'm surprised he would even go on idiot Piers Morgan show.

@Mike, Lol!!! If you knew anything about Jeff Kleiner you'd realize that the question you posed to him is rhetorical. No answer needed because it's so obvious...
Jeff Kleiner January 16, 2014 at 01:31 PM
Here's how close Michael Reagan, adopted son of Ronald Reagan was to his Father. He remembered his high school graduation this way:. ah, Michael, so beloved of his father... in his book On the Outside Looking In, Michael tells the story of how his adopted father, after giving the speech at his high school graduation, utterly failed to recognize him in the reception line... extending his hand to his adopted son, the Gipper said: "My name is Ronald Reagan. What’s yours?" "I’m your son, Mike,” Michael Reagan replied...

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was joined by President Ronald Reagan’s son Michael on Monday morning in Jacksonville, Florida. Michael Reagan is supporting Mr. Gingrich for the presidency and helping Mr. Gingrich fend off critics who say that the former speaker did not have a politically close relationship with his father. I think he expected to receive the Vice Presidency with Gingrich......ON THE MOON!!!! ROFLMAO!!!! This is the man I want to listen to....the one who wanted Gingrich to be President. http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2012/jan/30/picket-michael-reagan-joins-gingrich-campaign-trai/#ixzz2qaVRB0Pc

Steve Newman January 16, 2014 at 03:48 PM
Jeff- you know if you don't want to go- don't- that is still the choice you have that I and others fought for.
Mike January 16, 2014 at 07:17 PM
Steve, Jeff thinks everything in print 100% fact.
Steve Newman January 16, 2014 at 07:28 PM
Mike- you are right- if it's on the internet it must be true-unless you are watching CNN.
Jeff Kleiner January 16, 2014 at 08:58 PM
I am not asking for any of your posts to be deleted. I have no alter egos, no matter what you think. I post under my name, remember people are watching. No, thats Stevie who believes everything he reads on the internet. So go and make up some other lies, or e-mail Maggie and ask.
