Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Allen West have been invited to attend this year’s Values Voters Summit — one of the biggest conservative and religious right summits in the country.
The event will take place less than two months before the presidential election. This will be the seventh annual summit. The event is held by the Family Research Council’s political action committee. The group will partner with other right-ring and religious groups: the American Family Association Action, The Heritage Foundation, American Values, Liberty University/Liberty Counsel and Family Research Council.
Nine Republican governors and 10 federal lawmakers have been invited to attend — three of those invited speakers are from Florida.
Pam Tebow, the mother of football superstar Tim Tebow, has also been invited to attend. Pam, who lives in Florida, is an anti-abortion rights activist and Christian missionary. The Tebow family has been very public about its views on abortion.
The Values Voters Summit will take place Sept. 14-16 this year in Washington, D.C.
Florida had a significant presence at another large religious right and conservative political conference. Scott, Rubio and West — as well as three other federal lawmakers from Florida — were present at this year’s CPAC gathering.
