RightNation 2010

Blogging from Marriott Chicago Northwest in Hoffman Estates, IL

Good Afternoon!!  Welcome to RightNation, an event of the United Republican Fund of Illinois.  The main attraction of this new conference is Glenn Beck who will be speaking tonight at the Sears Centre in Hoffmann Estates.  

Earlier, there was a opening luncheon featuring John Fund of the Wall Street Journal, Dick Armey of FreedomWorks, and former ACORN employee Anita MonCrief.  Armey had a brief mention of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan during his speech.  The former House Majority Leader from Texas urged Midwest conservatives to rally behind Congressman Ryan’s Road Map for America

After the lunch, North Shore Exponent asked Dick Armey on his take of the US Senate race in Wisconsin.  Armey said that the recent Rasmussen poll from yesterday is a sign that Ron Johnson’s campaign is gaining traction against Russ Feingold. 

Tonight during the RightNation Convention at Sears Centre, the first 2012 Republican Presidential straw poll  will take place along with speeches from key conservative leaders.  Conservative stars including Herman Cain, Bill Brady, and Aaron Schock will be sharing the stage with Glenn Beck tonight.

Stay tuned for more updates from Hoffmann Estates.
