Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Conference is underway in DC and according to hate group leader Brian Brown, a bomb threat has cleared out the venue. Eight of the twelve declared GOP presidential candidates are scheduled to speak during the conference but it’s not yet known if any were on the premises when the alleged bomb threat came in. More on this as it becomes available.
UPDATE: Mediaite has more details.
Today multiple Republican presidential candidates, including Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum, spoke at the conference. Right after Santorum spoke, Faith & Freedom Coalition head Ralph Reed took the stage and said they need to evacuate the room because of threats and so the police can do a sweep. The evacuation just happened to occur right before George Pataki was scheduled to speak. C-SPAN was rolling when Reed told people to evacuate and they cleared out the room.
