Five candidates confirm for Presidential Family Forum

Posted: Updated:

Five of the Republican Presidential candidates confirmed they will be participate in the 2015 Presidential Family Forum.

Sen. Ted Cruz, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Rand Paul, and former Sen. Rick Santorum are the first to confirm. The forum will be held at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines on Friday, November 20.

All 15 of the major Republican candidates are invited.

 Frank Luntz will direct the discussion and include input from everyday Iowans.

"Truly this is a one-of-a-kind event," says Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER Foundation. "The Presidential Family Forum gives us a chance to see what's in the candidate's hearts, not just what's in their plans. And coming shortly before the holiday season, it may be the last, best chance to really understand what makes these leaders tick before Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucuses."

"We're thrilled to announce these five candidates will join us at our table," Vander Plaats continued. "And we look forward to announcing more guests in the coming weeks."

The last Presidential Family Forum was held in 2011.
