"We're thrilled to have Senators Cruz and Paul at the convention," said Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) Chairman Matt Nye. "Both men are powerful advocates for liberty; they have fantastic track records and offer a true alternative to the status quo."
Cruz and Paul join an impressive lineup of speakers at the convention, including best selling author Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital, media personality and author Wayne Allyn Root, noted economist Mark Skousen, tax reduction advocate Grover Norquist of American for Tax Reform, and Michael Steele, the former Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
The RLC National Convention brings together liberty activists from across the nation to organize and influence policy with the goal of returning the Republican Party to its core values of limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty. The features a presidential straw poll, informational panels, grassroots activist training and dozens of exhibitors.
Senators Cruz and Paul have consistently been the top two vote getters at straw polls conducted at RLC events around the country during the last 18 months or so, and Nye expects both to make a solid showing at the convention.
"The 2016 presidential primary is a true milestone for the liberty Republican movement," said Nye. "This is the first time liberty Republicans have more than one candidate to choose from, and it will be interesting to see how our members and activists react to the way each candidate has carved out his niche during the course of the year."
The Senators will be speaking on Friday October 9th in the middle of a schedule full of important issue panels and valuable activist training. You can learn more and register at the convention web site here.
