Pawlenty will headline Arizona Tea Party convention

Friday, February 18, 2011 at 2:25 pm | More from The Minnesota Independent

Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty is scheduled to headline a tea party summit in Phoenix, Ariz., from Feb. 25 to 27. The “American Policy Summit-Pathways to Liberty” is being marketed as the official two-year anniversary of the Tea Party movement. Pawlenty will also be headed to Nashville to speak on a panel with Arianna Huffington and Bill Kristol in March.

Pawlenty will be speaking at the Tea Party summit along with fellow potential presidential contenders Ron Paul and Herman Cain.

“We believe it is every citizen’s duty to defend America’s founding principles,” the summit website states. “That’s why one of the Tea Party Patriots’ goals is to gain the support of 60% of American citizens for the three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets.”

“This summit will be an important opportunity for Tea Party Patriots to come together to celebrate and recommit to the ideals and values that are responsible for the dramatic victories in the November election,” Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, said in a statement. “We’re delighted Gov. Pawlenty, Rep. Paul and Mr. Cain understand the importance of debating and discussing these fundamental issues.”

Event organizers have also included this welcome video:

Pawlenty will also be at Vanderbilt University in Nashville for the annual Impact Symposium, which begins March 22. Pawlenty will be talking about “Bridging the Gap: America’s Middle Class.”
