Why I’m Hosting Presidential Candidates

On August 4, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission will host a civil forum as part of the Send North America Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. At that event, I will talk with two candidates for President of the United States, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, about their vision for the future before an audience of 13,000 pastors and leaders from around the country.

After a few calls to respected figures in the pro-life community, though, who confirmed the accuracy of the video,
