On January 16th in Chicago, AFF will host will host a roundtable on the “State of the Republican Brand.” With so much dissatisfaction within the conservative and libertarian base, what is the state of the Republican “brand?” How should conservatives and libertarians re-shape the brand in 2008 and beyond? In some sense, President Bush envisioned an “ownership society” as a uniting theme for conservatives and libertarians. To what extend did this succeed or fail? Does polling data reflect a decline of voter support for smaller government, in general? Are the Republican presidential candidates reflecting voter preferences, or vice versa? Is the “leave us alone” coalition still intact?
Joining us in the discussion will be Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and Ramesh Ponnuru of the National Review. Moderating this discussion will be Blake Dvorak of Real Clear Politics. Stay tuned for more panelist.
This event will take place at the Union League Club located at 65 West Jackson Boulevard in Chicago, IL 60604. There will be a reception at 6:00 and the panel will begin at 7:00 pm. If you would like to RSVP for this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We will also be doing a straw poll so come ready with your vote!
