2016 Caucus

Sen. Mike Lee to make inaugural trip to Iowa in November

Utah Sen. Mike Lee to headline the 12th Annual Friends of the Family Banquet for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition

Below is the email the group just sent out:

We are thrilled to let you know that we have just secured Sen. Mike Lee of Utah as our keynote speaker at this year’s 13th Annual Friends of the Family Banquet. This must-not-miss dinner will be held on Saturday, November 9th at the Paul Knapp Learning Center on the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.  The event is expected to draw 750-1,000 Iowa activists who will play a crucial role in this critical 2013-2014 election cycle.  In addition to Sen. Lee, other speaking invitations are pending.

Sen. Lee is one of the GOP’s newest and most exciting rock stars to grace the national political scene.  After disappointing leadership of the Republican Establishment on many fronts–from illegal immigration to shrinking government, Sen. Lee is indeed a breath of fresh air.  Lee is without question, one of the top rated conservative ideologues in Congress–not afraid to take on leaders in his own party.  He has given the “base” reason to hope again that we can reclaim our constitutional republic.  He is a strong supporter of the protection of innocent life, traditional marriage and one of the top leaders working to totally defund Obamacare.  This will be Sen. Lee’s first political trip to Iowa!

Check-in for the event will start at 4:30 pm, with dinner beginning at 5:00 pm, and the program starting at 6:00 pm.  Individual tickets are $55 per person, ½ a table of 5 for $275, or a table of 10 for $500.  See the attached flyer for further details.  You may RSVP now by calling the office at 515-225-1515 or by emailing rsvp@ffciowa.com.  Contributions can be mailed to the office or made online at http://ffciowa.com/donate.
