Washington Briefing

It starts Friday: the 2007 "Washington Briefing," a gathering of conservative political and religious leaders in Washington, D.C. The event kicks off Friday, October 19th and runs until Sunday the 21st. The list of speakers reads as a who's who among the religious right, including
  • Dr. James Dobson, Focus on the Family
  • Tony Perkins, Family Research Council
  • Phyllis Schlafly, the Eagle Forum
  • Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House
  • Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families
  • Chuck Colson, chief counsel to Richard Nixon, chairman of Wilberforce Forum
  • Dr. Richard Land, Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission
  • Paul Weyrich, Free Congress Foundation.
Of course all the Republican presidential hopefuls will be present as well, speaking and signing books in run up to the weekend's straw poll of the conservative voters present. This meeting has the potential to affect the Republican presidential primary in a powerful way. I'm interested to see what comes of the weekend.
