The timing of this forum, less than six weeks before the Iowa primary, was critical both to Iowans who are vetting the candidates, and the candidates who are making their case to be our next United States Senator from Iowa. The purpose of this forum was to find out not only what the candidates believe, but why they believe the way they do. The U.S. Senate Family Forum also gave Iowans an opportunity to further vet the U.S. Senate candidates in a setting friendly to issues affecting the family.
The U.S. Senate Family Forum attracted lots of media from across the nation. Here’s some folks who are making a documentary about the politics in Iowa.
We were blessed with good media presence covering the event.
In addition, Governor Branstad, Lt. Governor Reynolds and Senator Grassley were Co-Hosts with The FAMiLY LEADER in providing an educational forum whereby Iowans can learn what they need to know about the U.S. Senate candidates. Our teaming shows Iowans unity within the conservative movement, a united force to be reckoned with on election day.
We had a very full house!
The moderator for The FAMiLY LEADER’s U.S. Senate Family Forum was Erick Erickson. Erick is a well-known Fox News contributor, conservative blogger, and editor-in-chief at Redstate.com. Erick Erickson gave a few opening remarks to the audience to set the tone of the Forum.
Good discussion by all involved. You can watch the entire forum here.
Looks like the candidates even had a good time!
