The Family Leader, an organization of Iowa Christian conservatives, has scheduled a news conference Dec. 20 to make an to make an announcement regarding the 2012 caucuses.
The Family Leader and its board of directors have gone through an extensive process this past year beginning with our 99-county tour to build grass roots momentum, a Presidential Lecture Series designed to help Iowans learn the pro-family vision of national leaders, getting candidates on record via the group’s marriage pledge and it’s Thanksgiving Family Forum, which enabled Americans to learn about the biblical and constitutional worldview of the candidates.
Social and Christian conservatives are a large bloc of caucusgoing Iowa Republicans. Their influence and support were seen as key to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s 2008 Iowa precinct caucus victory.
Family Leader President and CEO Bob Vander Plaats will make the announcement at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 20 at Comfort Suites, 11167 Hickman Rd., Urbandale.
