The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota announced today that it will be hosting two potential 2012 GOP candidates in April. In a news release, the Freedome Foundation said Romney and Pawlenty will speak at a dinner on April 9th. He will be joined by Gov. Pawlenty.
"The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota is both honored and excited to host two of our country's most influential and important conservative leaders," Annette Meeks, CEO of the Freedom Foundation said in a news release. "Governor Romney has been and continues to be one of the most powerful voices advancing free market policy alternatives. We're planning an exciting evening where Minnesotans will hear Romney's public policy ideas first hand."
Meeks said both Romney and Pawlenty will be making remarks at the event. They may also be flying together to New Orleans since both are scheduled to speak at the Southern Republican Leadership Council that weekend.
