McDonnell to speak to conservative activists at Value Voters Summit

Anita Kumar

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will join fellow Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee in speaking to conservative activists at the Values Voter Summit in the District later this month.

McDonnell and the former and perhaps future presidential hopefuls will gather at the Omni Shoreham Hotel for the fifth annual Values Voter Summit sponsored by the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Heritage Foundation, American Values and Liberty University. Hundreds of activists attend the event, which includes a presidential straw poll, an early predictor of which candidate may win the endorsement of Christian conservatives.

"Governor McDonnell has worked on behalf of life as a state legislator and the attorney general of Virginia, and continues to do so as governor,'' Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins said. "We are honored that he will join us to speak at this year's summit."

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli are not attending, but Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, is scheduled to speak about the "real cost of illegal immigration."

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and TV and radio host Sean Hannity have been invited but have not accepted. See the full speakers list.

Mitt Romney does not have any values. Mitt Romney is a narcissist, and no one needs a narcissist in the White House.

The only value Mitt Romney has is he feels the office of president is his birthright.

the tea party has cut the legs off this group. they've lost control the right wing. beck, palin and the tea party have captured the attention and steam of america's conservative activists.

whoever the republican presidential candidate will be in 2012, i'll bet real money they will not be attending.
