Attention! Attention all RedState and Freedomworks fans! There is a very exciting event coming to Ft. Worth, Texas next weekend! It's none other than the RedState Gathering which proves to be a very exciting event with a great line up of speakers.
You may be asking, "What IS RedState Gathering?" Glad you asked! From their event website: "In August 2009, RedState hosted the first RedState Gathering. Held annually, the Gathering has quickly become a leading grassroots event and has featured notable speakers such as Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Nikki Haley, Gov. Bobby Jindal, to name but a few. In 2011, the Gathering served as the launch pad for Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential bid. The Sixth Annual RedState Gathering will be held in Forth Worth, August 7-10, 2014."
It starts next Thursday, August 7th with Registration and a Governor's Reception with Governor Rick Perry.
The fun continues on Friday, August 8th, with a list of fantastic speakers: Governor Rick Perry, Former US Senator from North Carolina, Jim DeMint, Former VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Ben Sasse, US Senate Candidate-NEbraska, and John Ratcliffe, Candidate for US House District 4. Now for the line up from the great state of Texas! State Representative and Speaker of the House Candidate, Scott Turner, Konni Burton, State Senate Candidate for District 10 and our very own US Senator Ted Cruz from Houston! Not to be missed is the reception following the event on Friday evening with Senator Ted Cruz at Joe T. Garcias in the Stockyards District.
More excitement, (if you can stand it) on Saturday, August 9th with the following list of speakers: Governor Nikki Haley, Congressman, Jim Bridenstine, Republican National Committee Chair, Reince Priebus, our own Attorney General and candidate for Governor, Greg Abbott. Also, Ken Buck, Candidate for US House in Colorado's District 4, Paul Dietzel, Candidate for US House in Louisiana's District 6 and last but not least Drew Ryun from Madison Project.
RedState Gathering will also feature the following:
Panel Discussions on Obama Scandals, an Elections Preview and more featuring guests from Towhnhall and our very own RedState Contributing Editors.
- Saturday Evening Reception with Attorney General Greg Abbott
- Texas Motor Speedway – Food, Drink and a special surprise
- Ends with Sunday Brunch at 10 AM. Freedomworks, who is no stranger to grass roots efforts is partnering with RedState to put this event together. I'm a huge fan of both organizations.
I had a chance to meet Erik Erickson at a grassroots boot camp back in 2011, also in Ft. Worth. and I'm so happy to see them working together.
"The 2014 RedState Gathering Agenda has come together nicely and is sure to please. Thanks to the speakers, sponsors, and of course the activists who have registered to attend, the 2014 RedState Gathering will be the best yet. Don’t miss your chance to attend."-RedState
Just to review: RedState Gathering is happening next weekend, beginning on August 7th at 5:00 PM and going until Saturday, August 10th. The event is to be held at The Worthington Renaissance Ft. Worth Hotel, 200 Main Street. For more information for tickets and lodging, click on this link. I'll be helping out at the Freedomworks booth on Saturday! See you there!
