If you haven’t picked up the invite yet, or haven’t stopped at Real Debate Wisconsin, I’m headed to Americans for Prosperity’s Defending the American Dream Summit on October 4th and 5th along with Fred, Leslie at State Sunshine and Open Records, Mark Block (who is running the Students for Prosperity session Friday afternoon), Leah Vukmir (who is in on the How to Impact Your Legislator), and a few others.
The impressive list of confirmed speakers includes Presidential candidates Sam Brownback, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson, John Fund from The Wall Street Journal, John Stossel from ABC, and Robert Cochran, producer of “24” (wonder if he’ll drop any hints on what Season 7 holds for us). In addition, the calls are out to Presidential candidates Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, Rush Limbaugh, Walter E. Williams, Newt Gingrich, and a few others.
There is still room at both the conference and the host hotel, , the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel (which is offering a deal for attendees at $199/night), though the Best Care in the Air is running out of room on the 7:45 am 10/4 flight to DC. Dunno if there’s still room in either the White House briefing Thursday or Blogger’s Row because I signed up after business hours today.
Since Sean and Kevin are out there, both Fred and I are hopeful that we’ll get the inaugural Drinking Right, DC Edition in.
