 Martinsburg, WV – I am looking forward to attending one of the most anticipated events of the year, the Values Voter Summit of 2009. The summit will be held in Washington, D.C., on September 18 – 19 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

 The Values Voter Summit is a gathering of socially conservative thinkers, politicians, and other professionals drawn together to discuss the hot-topic issues of our day. Topics such as “Defunding Planned Parenthood,” “Obamacare,” “Illegal Immigration,” and “Marriage,” are just some of the many topics that will be explored and discussed during this weekend.

 The sponsors, groups such as the Family Research Council, American Family Association, and American Values, have joined together to bring a stunning, all-star event to the D.C., metro area.

 With over 40 confirmed speakers of the highest caliber in American Politics and civil rights scheduled to share during the weekend, guests will not find a dull moment during this event. Consider, that gathered in one place will be the likes of Mike Huckabee, Ken Blackwell, Gary Bauer, Bill Bennett, Ergun Caner, Bishop Harry Jackson, Bill O’Reilly, Star Parker, Tony Perkins, Carrie Prejean, Lila Rose, Mitt Romney, Stephen Baldwin, and on the list goes.

 You may remember that Carrie Prejean is the former Miss California and Miss America pageant contestant who caused national attention with her answers on same-sex marriage.
