Cyclone Conservatives: Hy-Vee Hall: ICA/ITR Forum & Ron Paul
Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
Iowa Christian Alliance/Iowans for Tax Relief Presidential Forum: Yesterday afternoon I had the privilege to attend the Iowa Christian Alliance/Iowans for Tax Relief Presidential Forum in Hy-Vee Hall. There were six very fine Presidential candidates there and so I will talk a little about the event and then delve into the candidates' performances and remarks a little. This event was extraordinarily well organized and very smooth. There were literally hundreds, it seemed, of volunteers in yellow shirts everywhere. They all seemed to know exactly what needed to be done. While this was a big event, the Straw Poll, to be held next month, will be bigger and so that just is another reminder of the tremendous numbers of volunteers that will be needed there. Contact the state party if you can help. In order to attend the event, a person needed to have RSVP'd or be sent an invitation. Also, to be able to enter the room where the forum was held, you had to go through metal detectors and have a yellow bracelet. I think it was very nice idea to have metal detectors for the sake of the candidates' safety.
