Hello Everyone! All Aboard for the Iowa Straw Poll!

Ames Straw Poll Hilton Coliseum, Ste 4700, 2711 South Loop Drive, Ames, IA August 13th 9:00am-5:00pm

This will be the media mega frenzy of the season! Meet and mingle with most of the presidential candidates in person! Plenty of entertainment and free food! Free transportation and tickets (a $100 plus value)!

Here is a great article outlining the event and what to expect. CLICK HERE Though the article states there is a $30 cost of a ticket to enter the hall to vote, Strong America NOw is providing tickets to those that support a candidate that has signed the Strong America now pledge. Those candidates include Bachmann, Pawlenty, Cain, Johnson, Santorum, Paul, and Gingrich.

The voting and speeches are expected to take place between 2:00pm and 3:30pm, but the candidates will each have outdoor tents, some air conditioned, with plenty of food and entertainment and your chance to meet them up close and personal! I hear Randy Travis will be at the Bachmann tent!
