Organizer: America's Future Foundation. Coming off special election losses and going into its convention, has the GOP gotten the message? Conservatives and libertarians have demanded that Republicans live up to their limited government principles. And yet, many Republicans in Congress voted for further increases in spending in the recent 2008 Farm Bill. At the convention, will McCain and the GOP leadership have what it takes to pull the party together around a program of limited government? Or, are the concerns of the conservative and libertarian “base” irrelevant as Obama and McCain vie for independent-minded swing voters? Join America’s Future Foundation to find out. Joining us for this conversation is Jeff Larson, CEO of the Minneapolis St. Paul 2008 Host Committee for the 2008 Republican convention and founding partner of Feather, Larson & Synhorst; Ryan Sager, author of “The Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians and the Battle to Control the Republican Party” (books will be available to purchase); and David Freddoso of the National Review Online. Annette Meeks of the Freedom Foundation will moderate this discussion.
