A bunch of us Townhaller's will be checking in on the Values Voter Summit, tomorrow.  

The Family Research Council, who is hosting the event, expects more than 2,000 attendees.  As of now, all nine (I guess that counts Sam Brownback) GOP presidential candidates, will be speaking at the event.

The obvious big story is: "What will Rudy Giuliani say?"  (After all, several conservative leaders threatened to bolt the party if he wins the nomination). 

My guess is it will go something like this ...

1.  Look, I know you and I don't always agree.  But I'm man enough to come here and talk to you.  My door will always be open to you, and that should count for something ... 

2.  I'm the only Republican who can stop Hillary.  If you're a conservative, that's a big, big deal.

3.  I will appoint "Strict Constructionist" judges.  A President can't overturn Roe vs. Wade himself, and let's be honest, the most important thing we can do is appoint good judges.

... At least, that's my bet.

Here's the current schedule of speakers ...
