The We The People Convention has been held annually since 2011. After the conservative wave election of 2010, Patriot Group leaders from across the state gathered to discuss how the momentum established by the election could be maintained. The idea of gathering Ohio’s Patriot Group leaders in an annual convention was born.
The 2011 convention was held at the Columbus Convention Center in July. It featured nationally known speakers and leaders such as:
- Anita Moncrief of ACORN-busting fame
- John Fund of the Wall Street Journal
- Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan
- Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots
In addition, there were two Ohio Citizen’s PAC fundraising dinners featuring commentator Dick Morris and Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.
The 2012 convention was held in July at the Ohio Exposition Center in Columbus, site of the Ohio State Fair. John Fund and Anita Moncrief returned, as well as this impressive list of speakers (among others):
- James O’Keefe of Project Veritas
- Matte Kibbe of Freedomworks
- Dineen Borelli of Freedomworks
In addidtion there was a fundraising dinner featuring Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan and Ohio Treasurer and US Senate candidate Josh Mandel. One speaker that was scheduled to speak that could not was Catherine Engelbrecht of True The Vote. Both the We The People Convention and True The Vote where targeted by Lois Lerner’s politicized IRS, and consequently Catherine was fighting multiple assaults from the IRS as well as targeted attacks from OSHA on her business.
Here is a short video of the highlights from the 2012 convention:
