The Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition, in conjunction with Concerned Women for America of Florida, is set to host its annual event that brings lawmakers, faith leaders, and engaged citizens together during the legislative session.
The Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition, along with Concerned Women for America of Florida, announced today that Mike Huckabee will be the keynote speaker at its annual Legislative Prayer Breakfast to be held in Tallahassee on Wednesday, March 29. Now a Florida resident, Huckabee was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007. Following his 2008 campaign for president, Huckabee hosted a top-rated weekend show on the Fox News Channel for six and a half years as well as a nationally syndicated radio show carried by over 700 stations.
“Governor Huckabee has always been an outspoken advocate for the values of life, liberty, and limited government, and we are thrilled that he will be joining us for this year’s breakfast,” said Jim Kallinger, Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition President. “His experience as a governor, presidential candidate, and successful media personality gives him a deep well of insight, and we look forward to hearing his unique perspective on the issues facing our state and nation today.”
“The principles that Governor Huckabee has fought for throughout his career line up perfectly with our group’s objectives,” said Terri Johannessen, State Director of Concerned Women for America of Florida “We are so happy to be part of this unique opportunity to gather with like-minded people of faith to pray for our state and nation as well as to hear from a respected leader like Governor Huckabee.”
During his tenure as governor, Huckabee left a legacy of tax cuts, new jobs, improved transportation and education systems, and an innovative healthcare initiative that focused on prevention. Time Magazine honored him as one of the best governors in America and Governing Magazine named him one of its “Public Officials of the Year” in 2005. Huckabee is also the bestselling author of 12 books.
This will be the fifth annual breakfast the Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition has hosted during the legislative session. The event draws a crowd of elected officials, pastors, and engaged citizens. In addition to Huckabee’s keynote address, the breakfast will also feature remarks from members of the Florida Legislature.
It will be held Wednesday, March 29, from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center in Tallahassee. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. Tickets may be purchased at www.FloridaFaithandFreedom.com or by calling (850) 222-8156.
