On Monday September 5th, our friends at the American Principles Project hosted the American Principles Project Palmetto Freedom Forum in Columbia, S.C.The forum featured questions from Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), and influential pro-life leader Dr. Robert P. George, founder of APP and the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University.
Candidates participating included Rep. Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Rep. Ron Paul, and Gov. Mitt Romney.
Rep. Bachmann, Cain, and Gov. Romney all pledged to select a pro-life vice-president for their ticket if nominated. Rep. Paul and Speaker Gingrich were not asked this question.
Following the debate, Sen. Jim DeMint joined SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser at our post-debate reception to discuss the presidential field and candidates with SBA List supporters. Thank you to everyone who attended the reception!
