A week or so ago, Politico reported that various right-wing leaders were set to gather following the election to plot strategy on how to move their agenda forward and revitalize the conservative movement. Now Politico is adding a few more details regarding who will be in attendance and what will be on the agenda:
A group of prominent conservatives will meet tomorrow at the Virginia weekend home of Brent Bozell to discuss the future of the movement and the GOP.
Bozell, chairman of the conservative watchdog group, the Media Research Center, is convening the group along with longtime GOP strategist and conservative pr executive Greg Mueller.
“There will be roughly twenty leaders at the meeting all of whom have been successful fundraisers and grassroots organizers, combined with a few conservative political and media strategists,” said Mueller.
As I reported last week, on the agenda will be the role of conservatives in the party, how to go forward in a capital dominated by Democrats and ultimately what path to take to recapture power in the mid-term elections and beyond.
In addition to Mueller and Bozell, other conservatives attending the private session will be: Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the conservative Federalist Society, and a leading figure in the movement on judicial and Catholic issues; Grover Norquist, the anti-tax crusader who heads Americans for Tax Reform; and Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Center and one of the most high-profile social conservatives.
