Cruz, Rubio, Palin, West, Trump among those assembling for faith and freedom this week

← return to Water Cooler

There’s a predictable silence in the mainstream media about the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s three-day Road to Majority conference, which begins Thursday at a bustling hotel two blocks from the White House. The event boasts a veritable who’s who list of conservatives and Republicans ready, willing and able to rumble. Among the speakers:

Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson and Jeff Sessions; Reps. Paul Ryan, Michele Bachmann, J. Randy Forbes and Louie Gohmert; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, Jeb Bush, Allen B. West, Rick Santorum, John Bolton, Michael Medved, Pat Robertson, Herman Cain and Donald Trump.

The conference mission, a spokesman says, is grass roots: “The conference will energize, train, and equip our top activists and chapter leaders on voter registration, voter education, get-out-the-vote, lobbying their legislators, building a church and neighborhood organization, and utilizing social media to mobilize supporters.”

By Election Day 2014, the group’s goal is to register one million new conservative voters, distribute 40 million voter guides and make more than 100 million direct voter contacts.
