A multitude of conservatives will soon descend on the nation’s heartland to heed the words of conservative luminaries. The third annual Family Leadership Summit gets underway in scenic Ames, Iowa, on Saturday for a daylong examination of traditional family values and their place on the planet. Among the many at the podium, appearing one after another in a nine-hour session: Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Tim Scott of South Carolina; Rep. Steve King of Iowa; Govs. Terry Branstad of Iowa, Rick Perry of Texas and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana; Tony Perkins, David Bossie and Mike Huckabee. It’s a family-style event, with some old-fashioned trimmings, opening with a cordial welcome, then a prayer. The modest $20 admission includes a box lunch.
“One of the hopeful outcomes of the Summit is to bring conservatives together early and consistently in the process leading up to the 2016 elections,” says Bob Vander Plaats, CEO of the Family Leader, the primary organizer of the event, along with Citizens United and Family Research Council Action. “We believe that by laying this foundation through an intentional leadership summit, the likelihood for conservatives to coalesce in a spirit of unity for impact and influence in 2014, 2016, and beyond will be greatly enhanced.”
