Today, the RNLA announced that it will give RNC Chief Counsel Justin Riemer the 2021 Robert J. Horn Chairman's Award during the National Election Law Seminar, which will be in Atlanta in August. Justin expertly led the RNC's legal department through the tumultuous 2020 election season - helping to protect the integrity of elections throughout the country, keep the RNC in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and provide expertise on questions of campaign finance and election administration. Justin has extensive experience with all aspects of elections and serves as a great asset to the entire Republican Party.Read more
It is particularly fitting that the leadership of RNLA in 2020 selected Harvey Tettlebaum to win the "Robert Horn Chairman's Award." Harvey and Bob were law partners. Although Harvey is a Missouri Republican party leader and lawyer who views Washington warily while Bob was a DC insider comfortable with lobbyists and insiders at cocktail parties, they were close friends. As Bob passed away this year, in a sense the role of "senior leader" has passed to Harvey. Below is the official press release.Read more
RNLA leaders from past and present share their thoughts and memories in advance of RNLA Founding Chair Bob Horn's funeral.
The services for Robert Jack Horn, who passed away on Thursday, February 27, 2020, will be held on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 3:45pm at Sixth and I Synagogue, 600 I Street NW Washington, DC.
Please join his family and friends to celebrate his remarkable life and then join the family immediately after for a reception at DBGB at 931 H St., NW, which is a short 5-minute walk from the service. In lieu of flowers, Bob would be pleased if you would consider donating to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum or the RNLA's Bob Horn Fund for Law Students.
"Robert Horn was known as a leading light in the Republican legal community for decades. As the Founding Chairman of the RNLA, Bob was a tireless advocate for election integrity and the fight for a conservative judiciary. I also want to recognize Bob for his work on behalf of the RNC over the years, particularly his service as parliamentarian and counsel during several national conventions. We will greatly miss Bob but will remember with fondness his many contributions to the Republican Party.”
