Rubio, Carson, Cruz, Graham, Huckabee, Jindal, Santorum Also to Speak
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Donald Trump will join seven other presidential candidates at this weekend's 10th annual gathering of the Values Voter Summit, an event that draws thousands of grassroots activists to the nation’s capital. Trump is scheduled to speak late Friday morning.
The confirmed presidential candidates include: Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Rick Santorum, and Donald Trump.
"Those candidates coming to the Summit are showing that they value social conservative voters and want to have a conversation with them. We will encourage attendees to take the candidates’ presence into account as they cast their vote in the straw poll,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
Also, Sen. John McCain, Gov. Rick Perry, David and Jason Benham, Dr. Bill Bennett, Gov. Sam Brownback, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, Kentucky County Clerks Kim Davis and Casey Davis, Brigitte Gabriel, Rep. Louie Gohmert, bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein, Mark Levin, Rep. Mark Meadows, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Star Parker, Joel Rosenberg, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise are among many other speakers to address attendees.
The 10th annual Values Voter Summit will be held from September 25-27 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. FRC Action's Values Voter Summit is cosponsored by AFA Action, American Values, Liberty Institute, Ohio Christian University School of Business and Government, and Family Research Council. An exhibit hall, book signings, radio row, new media row, and much more will be packed into this three-day conference.
On Friday evening, Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis will be honored with the "Cost of Discipleship" award. Saturday evening's Faith, Family, and Freedom Gala dinner will honor Media Research Center's Brent Bozell with the Vision and Leadership Award.
