The FAMiLY Leadership Summit in Ames, IA last Saturday featured five prospective 2016 presidential candidates and other political or cultural influencers. Caffeinated Thoughts wanted to make the speeches available to those who would like to listen to them in full. We were able to record most of the speeches.
Regrettably we were unable to record Iowa Governor Terry Branstad’s speech due to Shane Vander Hart who had a radio interview commitment at that time. We also missed recording speeches by David Bosse of Citizens United, Tony Perkins from the Family Research Council, and Bob Vander Plaats from The FAMiLY Leader. If those speeches become available elsewhere we will either link to them or embed them here.

Former U.S. Senator and 2012 Iowa Caucus winner Rick Santorum
Texas Governor Rick Perry
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
