|Presidential possibles Pawlenty, Huckabee to headline area events|
Two former Republican governors who have their eyes on the White House in 2012 -- Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Mike Huckabee of Arkansas -- will be in the region soon to promote their views and possible candidacies.
Pawlenty is slated to be in Collinsville next Thursday as the keynote speaker for a luncheon to benefit a conservative political-action committee formally known as "For the Good of Illinois PAC." The PAC’s chairman is Adam Andrzejewski, who made an unsuccessful GOP bid for Illinois governor in 2010. The luncheon also is to feature three new conservative Illinois state legislators from Metro East who won in last fall’s elections. Their victory has been dubbed by Andrzejewski as "the Metro East Miracle."
The luncheon begins at noon at the Gateway Center in Collinsville; tickets are $75.
Meanwhile, Huckabee is to be at the St. Louis Family Arena in St. Charles on May 1, as one of the headliners for a 3 p.m. event called "Road to the White House, Taking Back America."
The sponsor is radio station 97.1 FM, known as "FM News Talk 97.1." The hosts are to be radio talk-show hosts Jamie Allman and Dana Loesch.
The event also will feature Andrew Breitbart, a conservative blogger and commentator. Tickets are available through FM News Talk 97.1 and Metro Tix. The prices range from $16 to $103 for special VIP floor tickets.
