Bachmann, Bolton and Cain Added to Rep. King's Conservative Iowa Conference (w/DeMint, Santorum
RCP ^ | 2/22/11 | Erin McPike

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King announced an expanded list of speakers for a conservative conference he'll hold next month in Des Moines to underscore the nascent GOP nomination fight that will unfold in his state over the next year.

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint will keynote the Conservative Principles Conference on March 26, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is scheduled to participate as well. Now King has added Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Ambassador John Bolton and Herman Cain, all of whom are exploring the 2012 race for the White House.

The roster skews heavily to the most conservative potential hopefuls for the 2012 GOP nomination, and the event also will place heavy emphasis on tea party groups, showing the importance of conservative causes to GOP voters in the first-in-the-nation caucuses.

According to a release about the event from the congressman's office, the conference is "designed to begin the process of linking all early states in the nomination process," and "King's intention is to coalesce the common conservative principles the eventual 2012 Republican presidential nominee must possess."

That's it for the conservatives contemplating a run. Not a bad lineup. With God's grace, one of these will be POTUS.

Yup. The more I hear Bachmann the more I think she’s the right choice. Her message is consistent and her delivery is measured and serious. No yelping and emotion. Great attributes of a politician without the wishy-washy bullshit.

Great line up but IMHO, King and Santorum are the least of these.

Santorum is an Ethanol fetishist. He is a sad choice for Pres.

Much as I’d love to see Bolton as CiC, he doesn’t have a chance of winning unless he gets rid of that moustache.

King's office noted that participants have been invited on the basis of their conservative credentials, and more panelists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Yeah big joke that FReepers sold out Duncan in 2008 and jumped on the Fred bandwagon.

How’d that work out for you when Fred folded and endorsed McCain?

LOL and LOL and LOL. You’d think someone, his wife, a friend, an advisor, would tell him.
