GOVERNOR BRANSTAD AND LT. GOV. REYNOLDS, AND SENATOR CHARLES GRASSLEY JOINING WITH The FAMiLY LEADER TO HOST THE U.S. SENATE FAMILY FORUM
Location Announced and Tickets Now Available
Urbandale, IA – The FAMiLY LEADER will host a U.S. Senate Family Forum on Friday evening, April 25th. Governor Branstad and Lt. Gov. Reynolds, and Senator Charles Grassley will be joining with The FAMiLY LEADER as hosts for the event and will offer remarks to the audience.
The location of the forum will be at the Nettleton Center on the campus of Faith Baptist Bible College, 1900 NW Fourth St., Ankeny, IA 50023.
The timing of this forum, less than six weeks before the Iowa primary, is crucial both to Iowans who are vetting the candidates, and the candidates who are making their case to be Iowa’s next United States Senator.
The moderator for The FAMiLY LEADER’s U.S. Senate Family Forum is Erick Erickson, a Fox News contributor, conservative blogger, and editor-in-chief at Redstate.com.
The FAMiLY LEADER has invited U.S. Senate candidates Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst, Mark Jacobs, Matt Whitaker, and Congressman Bruce Braley. Clovis, Ernst, Jacobs, and Whitaker are confirmed for the event. Invitations were extended to those candidates who were polling at 5% or higher in the independent head-to-head poll by the Public Policy Polling on March 4, 2014.
The purpose of the U.S. Senate Family Forum is to allow Iowans an opportunity to further vet the U.S. Senate candidates in a setting friendly to issues affecting the family. The FAMiLY LEADER has a vast network of influential, authentic, conservative Iowans who plan to vote in the June 3rd primary and general election.
“We are thrilled to partner with Governor Branstad, Lt. Governor Reynolds and Senator Grassley in providing an educational forum whereby Iowans can learn what they need to know about the U.S. Senate candidates,” says Bob Vander Plaats, President & CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER. “Our teaming shows Iowans unity within the conservative movement, a united force to be reckoned with on election day.”
