Iowa Freedom Summit draws big GOP names

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday brings several political players to the state, including New Jersey Gov. Christ Christie.

The conservative summit is co-hosted by Iowa Rep. Steve King and Citizens United, and is being held in Des Moines.

Others set to speak at the event include Gov. Terry Branstad, Sen. Joni Ernst, Congressman Rod Blum and Sen. Charles Grassley. Gov. Sarah Palin, Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Ted Cruz are also scheduled to attend, along with high-profile businessman, Donald Trump.

Speculation has been circling as to whether Gov. Christie will make a presidential run in 2016. Many think it's likely, however, he has yet to announce any official plans.
