RedState Gathering: Gov. Bobby Jindal (R, LA).
We’re always happy to hear from Gov. Bobby Jindal, and after the speech that he gave last Saturday* (as I noted at the time, you could see the crowd collectively thinking Why, Bobby here would make a perfectly good Vice President) he took a few moments to talk to me about… you know. Stuff**. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RedState Gathering: Reince Priebus, Sharon Day.
A couple of videos, bundled together: we had both RNC Co-chair Sharon Day and RNC Chair Reince Priebus speaking at the RedState Gathering. Both took a moment to speak to me later: Sharon Day Reince Priebus By the way: I am not claiming that Reince was energized enough by the RedState Gathering to go out the next day to the Sunday morning talk shows and | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Rep. Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-07 PRI)
There are going to be a bunch of Florida interviews this week; as noted before, Florida’s primary is going on even as we speak. And one person I spoke to was Rep. Sandy Adams, who is now in a primary with Rep. John Mica; we touched base after her speech to talk a little about the Gathering, and whatnot. Rep. Adams’ site is here. Moe | Read More »
It is one of the bugs we have to work out. On the weekend of the RedState Gathering, there’s very little content about the RedState Gathering at RedState. Most of us are at the event. Next year we will have to live stream the whole thing on the front page. This year’s event was a great success. I could not have put this event together | Read More »

Promoted from the diaries Ted Cruz, fresh off his amazing win in the runoff for the Texas Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, was in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday for this year’s RedState Gathering. He gave a great speech to kick off the conference and was kind enough to sit down for a interview with me. I first met Cruz at CPAC 2011 and have followed | Read More »
Ted Cruz Interview at RedState Gathering 2012
From the diaries by Neil… In what is widely being described as one of the TEA Party’s biggest upsets, Ted Cruz became Texas’ Republican nominee for US Senate on Tuesday night. Heavy advantages in name ID, money and institutional support were overcome by grassroots activists, ready to send a fighter to Washington. I’ve known Ted for two years but this weekend at #RSG12 I had | Read More »

Joe the Plumber Will be at the RedState Gathering. Will You?
Talk about a guy in the right place at the right time. An American in fly over country just happened to get caught on tape asking a question about tax policy on small businesses to then candidate Barack Obama.

In 2010, one of the few candidates the GOP establishment and conservative activists agreed on was a businessman in Wisconsin named Ron Johnson. “Crazy!!!” people said. “It’s Wisconsin. Russ Feingold!!!! Ron Johnson can’t win.” Then he got the nomination. “It’s crazy!!! He bores people with charts. He scares the old people. He actually says we need to cut spending. It’s Wisconsin!!!!” Call Ron Johnson the | Read More »

Happy Birthday RedState. Will You Join Gov. Rick Scott and Me in Florida?
Josh Trevino posted this on January 24, 2004, at his blog Tacitus. Seven months later RedState.com came online. We’ve come along way since 2004. In our fifth year, we started the RedState Gathering. I put up a post without even telling my bosses at Eagle Publishing what I was up to. I just knew some of us wanted to get together in person after five | Read More »

The leader of the conservatives in the United States House of Representatives, Jim Jordan (R-OH), is coming to the RedState Gathering.
