In 2009, rising conservative stars Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio appeared at the RedState Gathering along with Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Michael Williams, Ted Cruz, and others.
The benefit of a RedState Gathering is pretty simple — candidates who show up pay their own way and commit to hanging out, not just talking down to you from a stage.
It's cheap. It's grassroots. It's a real commitment from candidates and politicians to get to know you, the grassroots.
This year, from September 17th to 19th, we're going to do it all over again. This year, we're going to include some activist training from American Majority, some quality down time for RedStaters to hang out, and some stellar candidates.
Come join us in Austin, TX as we mock the hippies, improve our activist fighting skills, and see each other face to face.
