LI Hosts Election Night Party Tonight
November 2, 2010, Arlington, VA—Tonight the Leadership Institute hosts conservative and Tea Party leaders for a historical election victory party as Americans vote out the ruling class and welcome constitutional conservatives.

Conservative strategist and Reagan Biographer Craig Shirley and Virginia Tea Party Patriot Chairman Jamie Radtke will join hosts Richard Viguerie, chairman of and Morton Blackwell, president of the Leadership Institute, in an election night victory party for 500-plus conservative and Tea Party activists.

"This election signals the renewed debate in this country about the role of government in the affairs of the American people," says Craig Shirley, author of Reagan's Revolution and Rendezvous with Destiny. "Conservatives have been reenergized by the grassroots tea party activists and together are changing the direction of the country in this election."
"We're 'ruling out' the ruling class in 2010," said Mr. Viguerie.  "After seeing the success of the Tea Party Convention last month, we're delighted to have Jamie Radtke attend our party and bid 'good riddance' to the elites."

Key conservative leaders who will be available for interviews include Mr. Blackwell and Mr. Viguerie, along with Ken Cuccinelli, Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia, George Allen, former Governor and Senator for the Commonwealth of Virginia, Kellyanne Conway, President of the polling company; Jenny Beth Martin and Mark Meckler, Co-Founders and National Coordinators of the Tea Party Patriots; Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform; Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council; Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity; and others.

A media room will be available for interviews.  There will also be a bloggers row. Call to reserve a spot.
