GOP’s Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann to speak at Falwell’s Liberty University
Two Republican presidential prospects, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, will speak at Liberty University in September, LU Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said on Friday.
Bachmann, founder of the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives, is an announced candidate for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.
Perry, in his 10th year as governor of Texas, has said publicly that he’s thinking about running for the GOP nomination for president. He, too, is popular with tea party followers.
“Since Liberty is the world’s largest Christian university, we think it is important to expose the students to as many candidates as possible,” Falwell said.
