(West Des Moines, IA) Gov. Mike Huckabee will keynote the 14th annual Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Spring KickOff. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 8th at Point of Grace Church (305 NE Dartmoor Drive, Waukee, IA). This year’s event will feature a reception at 5:30 pm, followed by the program at 6:30 pm. A capacity crowd of 500 to 750 activists are expected to be in attendance.
The following candidates have been confirmed to be in attendance at the event: Matt Whitaker, Joni Ernst, Scott Schaben, Mark Jacobs and Sam Clovis running for the U.S. Senate and Brad Zaun, Matt Schultz, Monte Shaw, Robert Cramer, and David Young running for the U.S. House in District 3. These candidates will be available during the event and also have the opportunity to address the crowd for a few minutes each. We will also be welcoming Ralph Reed, National Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman, State Auditor Mary Mosiman, and Master of Ceremonies Paul Pate of Cedar Rapids.
Governor Huckabee was the winner of the 2008 Iowa Precinct Caucuses and is the host of a weekly show, Huckabee, on Fox News. The Governor continues to be a strong advocate for American exceptionalism and the protection of the unborn.
“Gov. Huckabee will bring a message of optimism while stressing the urgency to elect constitutional conservatives here in Iowa this fall. We look forward to his perspectives on abusive IRS practices and new regulations that threaten free speech as outlined in our first amendment. The governor’s remarks are sure to be a call to action going into the 2014 election,” Steve Scheffler, president of Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition stated.”
