West Des Moines, IA – Despite the slow start to the 2012 presidential caucus season in the state, the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition seems to be cutting through the fog with their annual Spring Kickoff event. The event has already begun to garner national media interest for its role in the 2012 Iowa Caucuses and expected turnout is on the rise.
As a result, the group has added an additional name to their line-up of speakers as they close in on Monday, March 7th event. The event is now set to feature five individuals that have been billed as potential presidential candidates heading into the 2012 Iowa Caucuses. Those candidates are former CEO of Godfathers Pizza Herman Cain, former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and the recent addition of former Speaker of the U.S. House Newt Gingrich. This collection of speakers marks the first event of its kind in the 2012 race with multiple potential candidates sharing the same stage. A similar event is not likely to be seen this spring.
Other distinguished guests expected to attend the event include conservative Congressman Steve King, Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds and the president of the national Faith & Freedom coalition and Fox News contributor Ralph Reed.
The event is set to be held at Point of Grace Church in Waukee, IA from 5:30-7:30pm on Monday, March 7th.
