You’ve probably seen the wrap-around ad and Corner posts announcing the National Review Institute’s 2013 Future of Conservatism Summit, held January 25 through 27 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel at 2500 Calvert Street in Washington, D.C.
I’ve gotten a not-yet-finalized schedule, and at 4:15 p.m. Saturday, I’ll be moderating a debate/discussion between nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Hugh Hewitt and Mark Krikorian, Center for Immigration Studies. You can safely assume we’ll be looking at how much of the GOP’s poor showing in 2012 is the result of the way they handle the immigration issue, what to make of the immigration reform proposals from Marco Rubio, whether Washington understands the problems of border states, what to do in regards to border security, and what to do with those who have come to the country illegally.
If immigration isn’t your big issue, don’t worry; the three days of events will cover a slew of topics, and chances are there’s at least one speaker who ranks among your favorites: Representative Paul Ryan, Mia Love, Senator Ted Cruz, Virginia governor Bob McDonnell, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli, Bill Bennett, former senator Jim DeMint, Larry Kudlow, Charles Krauthammer, former representative Artur Davis, and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal.
Finally, just about everyone from NR and NRO will be there, and while I can’t guarantee you that you’ll get to chat with your favorite folks, we’re usually pretty accessible. So check it out.
