Presidential Family Forum(Des Moines, IA) Approximately 1500 people attended the 2015 Presidential Family Forum at the Community Choice Convention Center in Des Moines, IA on Friday night.  The event was hosted by The FAMiLY Leader Foundation and it was moderated by Frank Luntz.

Seven Republican presidential candidates sat at a table on stage with Luntz and had a discussion on various questions that Luntz posed.
