Iowa Family Leader event (AUDIO)

The Iowa Family Policy Center’s “Celebrate the Family” event this Sunday afternoon attracted a crowd of about 1500 to a church sanctuary in Des Moines.  Click here to listen to speeches by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Iowa Family Policy Center president Chuck Hurley and Iowa Family Leader president Bob Vander Plaats.

The Iowa Family Leader is a new, umbrella organization for the Iowa Family Policy Center, Marriage Matters (a subsidiary of IFPC which offers counseling to troubled couples), and IFPC’s PAC.  Vander Plaats is the 2002, 2006 & 2010 Republican candidate for governor who led this year’s successful effort to oust three justices from the Iowa Supreme Court.

Huckabee held a news conference before today’s event.  Listen to it here, and find a live blog of the news conference as well the entire Iowa Family Policy Center/Iowa Family Leader event by following that link.

UPDATE:  Julie Summa from IFPC emailed a news release on Tuesday, pointing out the name of the group is The Family Leader, hence the strike throughs above.
