FreedomWorks held a Grassroots Summit just outside of Orlando, Florida this past weekend to mark the sixth anniversary of the 9.12 rally in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 12, 2009.
With more than 2,000 attendees, 80 volunteers and 60 sponsor groups, the feedback from those who attended has been phenomenal.
We want to give a special shout out to the 27 Southeastern sponsor groups who were on display throughout the building and who pushed hard to sell event passes – even at the last minute.
Andrew Wilkow hosted the event, which also featured Glenn Beck, FreedomWorks C.E.O. Adam Brandon, former Wall Street Journal editor and Fox News Contributor Stephen Moore, Rev. C.L. Bryant, FreedomWorks Activist of the year, Arturo Morales and others.
From Congress, Representatives Ted Yoho, Mark Meadows, Ron DeSantis, John Fleming, Thomas Massie and Tim Huelskamp also addressed the enthusiastic crowd.
FreedomWorks would like to thank the speakers, sponsors, volunteers and staff at the Silver Spurs Arena who made this historic event possible. With your help, we look forward to working with our activists in the sunshine state to turn a "purple state" into a solid red one for the 2016 election cycle.
