By Craig Robinson

The stage is set for the first 2012 presidential cattle call in Iowa. Later this evening, five potential presidential candidates will share the stage at Waukee’s Point of Grace Church when the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition hosts its annual event.

More than 120 media credentials have been requested and the parking lot is already full of satellite trucks and TV vans. Following the event tonight, Greta Van Susteren of FOX News will broadcast her TV show, On the Record with Greta Van Susteren from the church.

Organizers are expecting 600 people at tonight’s event. Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, and Buddy Roemer will be in attendance. TheIowaRepublican.com will have full coverage of the event later tonight and tomorrow morning.
