AFF on the Road Minneapolis, Minnesota
“AFF on the Road” next stop: Minneapolis, Minnesota! On Thursday, July 24th America’s Future Foundation will host “The Pre-convention Debate: Has the GOP gotten the message?” just a few short months before the Republican convention.
Coming off special election losses and into its convention, has the GOP gotten the message? Conservatives and libertarians have demanded that Republicans live up to their limited government principles. And yet, many Republicans in Congress voted for further increases in spending in the recent 2008 Farm Bill. At the convention, does McCain and the GOP leadership have what it takes to pull the party together around a program of limited government? Or, are the concerns of the conservative and libertarian “base” irrelevant as Obama and McCain vie for independent-minded swing voters? Join America’s Future Foundation to find out.
Joining us for this conversation is Jeff Larson, CEO of the Minneapolis St. Paul 2008 Host Committee for the 2008 Republican convention and founding partner of Feather, Larson & Synhorst and Ryan Sager, author of “Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians and the Battle to Control the Republican Party” (books will be available to purchase) and David Freddoso of the National Review Online. Annette Meeks of the Freedom Foundation will moderate this discussion.
This event will be held on the 3rd floor of Solera Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. Solera is located at 900 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403. A reception will begin at 6:00 pm with drinks and hors d’ oeuvres and the roundtable will begin at 7:00 pm.
Please sent this out to your friends/colleagues in St.Paul/Minneapolis and RSVP to Kathleen@americasfuture.org.
