Paul Ryan And Todd Akin Will Both Appear At Values Voter Summit
They won’t share a stage, but Paul Ryan and Rep. Todd Akin will share the same spotlight at the Values Voter Summit this week.
The summit is sponsored by Akin’s most prominent remaining supporter, the Family Research Council. And with the annual confab only days away, FRC President Tony Perkins said his group is not about to keep its star candidate away from its signature event.
Ryan speaks Friday on the Values Voter main stage. Akin won’t get the same honor, Perkins told an audience at the National Press Club Wednesday, but he will make more than one appearance.
“Unfortunately we have a waiting list of those who want to speak,” Perkins said. “We’ve had to turn away members of Congress. But he will be there participating in one of our events and speaking at, I believe, our political action committee reception Friday afternoon.”
