We are pleased to announce that Governor Mike Huckabee will speak to the 2011 Republican Leadership Conference.

Mr. Huckabee, who served as Governor of Arkansas from 1996-2007, sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2008 and is also frequently mentioned as a contender for next year. The host of the number one rated weekend program on the Fox News Channel, “Huckabee,” he is also a bass guitar player, former Baptist pastor and founder of HuckPac.

Governor Huckabee has authored nine books. His latest hit is a New York Times Bestseller entitled, “A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (and a Trillion That We Don’t).” His syndicated program, “Huckabee Report,” is heard on 600 radio stations daily.    Mike Huckabee has been recognized by numerous renowned publications and organizations for his accomplishments. Governing Magazine listed him as one of the Public Officials of the Year in 2005. In 2007, he was named one of the five best governors in America by TIME. And AARP has awarded Governor Huckabee its Impact Award.

Mr. Huckabee finished second to John McCain in the race for the 2008 GOP nomination. Most national polls have shown him in first place or near the top among potential 2012 Republican contenders. He also polls well against President Obama in hypothetical general election match-ups, finishing ahead in some surveys and so far Iowa voters have rated him as their top choice. Governor Huckabee has been consistent in stating that he will make a decision regarding his political future later this summer.

Herman Cain will address the 2011 Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans.

Register today before the tickets sell out.

RLC 2011 is being held on June 16-18th and is being organized by the same committee that produced the 2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Also addressing RLC 2011 will be Jim DeMint, Marsha Blackburn, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Mary Matalin.

“I look forward to returning to New Orleans to address the Republican Leadership Conference,” Cain said. “Last year, I explained how important it was for Republicans to win back the House during the midterm elections in 2010. And we did. Now, we set our eyes on the U.S. Senate and the White House. Our momentum continues to grow to get this country back on track, and RLC is a critical component in doing so.”

“Last year at SRLC, Herman Cain rocked the house,” RLC 2011 President & CEO Charlie Davis said. “I am certain that we are in for another amazing address and I’m pleased to welcome him back to another Republican Leadership Conference,” he said.

Herman Cain is one of America’s most respected business leaders, having worked at the Coca Cola Company and then at the Pillsbury Corporation, where he rose to the position of Vice President at the age of only 34. He later became CEO and President of Godfather’s Pizza, where he turned the company from bankruptcy to profitability in just 14 months.

In 1994, Cain was elected as Chairman of the National Restaurant Association and served as the chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. For five years, Cain hosted his own radio show on 95.5 WSB in Atlanta, the country’s single largest radio station.

In January, Herman Cain established a presidential exploratory committee.
