Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove and talk show host Neal Boortz will speak in Jacksonville on Fri., Nov. 18, as part of “Stand Up for America: Debt, Taxes, and You Decide 2012.” According to a press release, the event will be “a lively and entertaining discussion of the important issues in the news, including the 2012 election, spending, debt, and taxes.”

WOKV radio’s Andy Dean and Jamie Dupree will also be participating in the event.

Rove still has his hands in governmental affairs. American Crossroads, a Super PAC founded in part by Rove, recently launched a series of attack ads targeting Democrats across the country. One, which aired in Florida, accused Sen. Bill Nelson of “voting for skyrocketing debt” and “reckless spending.” The group also launched a Spanish-language campaign that directed viewers to the English-language, a website supported by Rove’s Crossroads GPS.

In addition to hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, Boortz has co-authored a series of books, including The Fair Tax BookThe Terrible Truth About LiberalsSomebody’s Gotta Say It and Fair Tax: The Truth: Answering the Critics.

Protesters with Occupy Jacksonville, one of the many offshoots of the Occupy Wall Street protests, have announced they will be demonstrating outside the event.
