According to a press release distributed by the group, the "Road to Recovery Rally" will focus on the need for jobs, rising energy prices, spending and budgeting for a strong defense.
"Our goal is to engage the faithful, while reaching out to those undecided voters by providing them facts and motivation to come down off of the fence," write event organizers Nancy Milholland and Lora Halberstadt.
In addition to Johnson and Thompson's appearances, retired US Navy SEAL Christopher Mark Heben, Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and conservative radio talk show host James T. Harris as the emcee. Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus has also been invited.
The rally is set for 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the old Sam's Club building at 6200 Regency West Road. It is free and open to the public.
Here is the group's full press release:
America waited while President Obama, a Democrat Congress and Senate promised us to focus like a laser beam on the economy; yet instead pushed through the $1.93 trillion Healthcare Law on a partisan vote in the middle of a recession. 3.5 years later we are still asking - where are the jobs? A lower unemployment rate means nothing, when it’s the result of more job seekers walking away hopeless and therefore shrinking the size of the labor force.
Racine Tea Party PAC will be hosting the second Victory 2012 event – the Road to Recovery Rally (It’s About Jobs) on Saturday October 27th. We want to shine a spotlight on the truely important issues facing our state and nation today; such as gas/energy prices, lack of jobs, need for a strong defense and out of control spending. Our goal is to engage the faithful, while reaching out to those undecided voters by providing them facts and motivation to come down off of the fence.
The event will feature retired US Navy SEAL - Christopher Mark Heben, Governor - Tommy Thompson, Senator - Ron Johnson, Representative - Robin Vos, emcee Conservative Radio Talk Show Host - James T Harris and more.
