Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is the latest confirmed speaker at next month’s Values Voter Summitin Washington, D.C., the Family Research Council, which is hosting the conservative policy summit through its policy arm, announced Wednesday.
Jindal joins a host of GOPers including confirmed presidential contenders Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Georgia business owner Herman Cain, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.).
Other confirmed speakersinclude House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Steve King (R-Iowa). Among the unconfirmed speakers are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
Every candidate or current congressional leader invited to attend the Values Voter Summit, scheduled for Oct. 7-9 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, is a Republican.
FRC Action — and co-sponsors American Family Values, the Heritage Foundation, Liberty University and Liberty Counsel — have invited several anti-abortion-rights activists including Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, Live Action President Lila Rose and former Planned Parenthood Clinic Worker Catherine Adair.
Thethree-day conferencewill include a presidential straw poll and breakout sessions that cover topics such as using religion to impact policy, mobilizing minority communities, and defunding Planned Parenthood.
As The American Independent sister site The Minnesota Independent previously reported, past Values Voter Summits (this is the sixth) tend to create controversy. For example, in 2008, vendors sold “Obama Waffles”with packaging many viewed as racist. Past summit speakers have claimed the anti-Christ will be a gay man, and a preacher made the case that it’s okay to call gays “faggots.”
