The eyes of the nation will focus on Florida October 20-21 as the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) hosts Presidency IV. This historic event will bring together the Republican presidential candidates in the all-important battleground state of Florida.
The schedule of events for the weekend includes candidate rallies, receptions for both the Federation of Black Republicans and the National Hispanic Association, a prayer breakfast, and a reception for the RPOF Jewish Advisory Council. It will all culminate in the Presidential Debate scheduled for Sunday night on FOX news. This will be another incredible opportunity for Gov. Mike Huckabee to outshine all the rest of the candidates for the Republican nomination.
Florida for Huckabee first confirmed Gov. Huckabee’s attendance at Presidency IV in an exclusive interview on May 29th. Here is a little of what Gov. Huckabee told us then: “I expect to do very well in Iowa and New Hampshire and ride that momentum into Florida. Then I expect to do really well here and, having shown strength in a big state, carry that into the Super Primary. So Florida will be a very important part of our overall strategy. As an authentic, consistent conservative with executive experience, I have a message that resonates with Florida's Republicans”
You can look forward to some live blogging from Presidency IV on Florida for Huckabee.
That upcoming weekend in October will prove to be decisive in the Republican primary because coinciding with Presidency IV in Florida is the Washington Briefing in DC. Sponsored by the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family Action, the Washington Briefing is a gathering of who’s who in the social conservative movement. They will come together and cast votes in yet another Straw Poll. So the candidates will be bouncing back and force between Orlando and DC on this upcoming power-packed weekend. And I believe it may be the moment that we see Gov. Huckabee step onto the national stage in a way we have not seen before.
