FREEDOM SUMMIT CHICAGO 2015
November 14, 2015
The 2016 presidential campaign is already underway, as candidates have begun to jockey for the attention of voters and the dollars of donors. The field of Republicans poised to challenge Hillary Clinton in November of 2016 has grown large and impressive, and conservatives across America will need to choose from among them when the primary season kicks off in January of 2016. The issues facing the nation have never been more serious, from the threat of ISIS in the Middle East, to the mounting debt here at home. Now is the time for voters to equip themselves to make the right choice in the months to come.
On November 14, 2015, conservatives, libertarians, and TEA Party members from across the Midwest will join together for a full day of education, inspiration, and motivation. The day will include messages from some of the nation’s most well-respected conservative commentators, who will address the critical issues of the 2016 campaign. Attendees will also have access to break-out sessions that will provide information and action steps to ensure that the issues of freedom and liberty are front and center during the campaign. The day will also include appearances by some of the leading Republican presidential candidates who will make their cases to become the party’s nominee. This event — less than a year before the 2016 presidential election — will launch an army onto the battlefield that is the 2016 campaign to fight for freedom.
