Former Presidential Candidate Gary Bauer To Represent Social Conservatives at Republican National Convention

Aug 22, 2012, 13:20 ET from Campaign for Working Families

WASHINGTON, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer will be available to the media during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.  Mr. Bauer will be discussing the issues motivating social conservatives as well as detailing some of the strategic campaigns for activating this important group of voters.

Bauer has long been an influential leader in the conservative movement.  In past elections his targeted advertising on social issues has played a significant role including, for example, his marriage-focused ad campaign in Ohio during the 2004 Bush-Kerry Presidential race.

Recently, the Guardian called Bauer "one of the leading campaigners in the U.S. on pro-life and pro-traditional family issues. Bauer, who served in the Reagan administration, founded the Campaign for Working Families, a powerful and well-funded conservative political action committee."

In addition, Gary Bauer is one of the founding members of Christians United for Israel and a board member of the Emergency Committee for Israel, which will be running ads during the GOP convention.

Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, will be available for analysis and interviews regarding the broad range of issues -- from evangelical support for Mitt Romney to free markets, values and the Middle East -- that will be driving a large number of conservative voters to the polls in the fall. 

"Competing visions of America can be clearly seen in this election," said Bauer. "Either America will continue down Obama's dead-end road of European-style socialism or America will embrace the pro-family, pro-life, pro-free enterprise vision of the party of Lincoln and Reagan."
