Caffeinated Thoughts: Steve King Announces Iowa Freedom Summit

(Des Moines, IA) Congressman Steve King, along with Citizens United, announces the first Iowa Freedom Summit to be held Saturday, January 24, 2015. Confirmed speakers for the Summit include Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Rick Santorum, Senator Mike Lee, Representative Marsha Blackburn, Ambassador John Bolton, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. The Iowa Freedom Summit will be held at Hoyt-Sherman Place and is free for the public to attend.

This is not the first time King has hosted an event highlighting prospective presidential candidates.  In 2011, King was involved with a forum held at Southern New Hampshire University.  He later hosted his own event, the Conservative Principles Conferece, in Des Moines in March of 2011 that featured every Republican presidential candidate with the exception of Mitt Romney.

“Midterm elections gave our country a dramatic shift in possibilities. It is exactly the right time to bring our national leaders to Iowa to hear them cast a conservative vision for our Nation’s future,” King said in a released statement. “Iowa’s First in the Nation status has created an informed, engaged, and active electorate all eager to begin the evaluation process of potential leaders of the free world. The Iowa Freedom Summit will further energize conservatives and begin the caucus season in earnest. I’m very glad to partner with Citizens United and David Bossie to bring this unique opportunity to Iowa in January.”
