FRC Actions Annual Value Voters Summit in DC
The Family Research Council is holding it’s annual Value Voters Summit at the Washington Hilton in DC this weekend. I was able to catch some of today’s speakers including Lou Dobbs, Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, Congresswomen Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), as well as former Washington Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs. Numerous other speakers are lined up throughout the day and I’ll be catching Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney when he speaks tonight around 7pm.
The Summit has more speakers lined up throughout weekend along with workshops and an exhibition hall dedicated to pro-family and conservative groups such as Americans for Tax Reform and Pro-Life Americans. They also have some satirical vendors selling items such as “Obama Waffles”.
I’ve included some pictures from today and I’ll update later with more from Romney’s speech. Check out the Valued Voters Summit Website here.
