Rapid City Businessman Bob Fischer hosts Ted Cruz & Rand Paul at Values Voters Summit

From the “Politico Playbook” reporting on a Associated Press Story:

GAME CHANGE – “Among social conservatives, a pocketbook message,” by AP’s Ken Thomas : At the three-day Values Voters Summit, which opened yesterday at the Omni Shoreham in D.C., “a new wave of Senate Republicans auditioned before prominent conservative activists and faith leaders, deriding President Obama’s health care law and his steering of the economy and foreign policy.


Before the summit, Cruz and Paul sat down for separate closed-door meetings with a group of evangelical leaders, including Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, which sponsored the event, former presidential candidate Gary Bauer and Robert Fischer, a South Dakota businessman. The senators were joined by their wives during the session and discussed their faith and views on issues.”

    Does anyone know more about this “Mr. Fischer?”

    “This is not a fundraiser, nor an endorsement of U.S. Senator Rand Paul or U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, just a great opportunity for you to get to know them and discuss your ideas and views with them and hear of their lives, faith, and respective vision for our nation,” wrote Robert Fischer, a South Dakota-based conservative organizer, in an emailed invitation to dozens of evangelical Christian leaders.

    The gathering is being held in conjunction with the Family Research Council’s Values Voters conference, an annual gathering of Christian conservatives in Washington, but it is not an official part of that event. Rather, it is being staged by a loosely-organized group of Republican leaders that call themselves “Conservatives of Faith.”

    The hosts include Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, the former presidential candidate Gary Bauer, the conservative talk show host Janet Parshall and Richard Viguerie, the direct mail pioneer, along with a handful of others from the conservative movement. Mr. Fischer is the group’s chief organizer.

    The same group met in the midst of the last two Republican presidential nominating fights. But after Republicans failed to nominate a Christian conservative in either race, many of the activists concluded they must begin to discuss potential candidates well before the next campaign begins.”
