Family leader announces speakers for its "presidential lecture series"


DES MOINES, Iowa. (KTIV)--Expect at least five "potential" presidential candidates on one northwest Iowa college campus over the next few months.

The Family Leader, headed by Bob Vander Plaats, has announced Dordt College, in Sioux Center, will host its "presidential lecture series".

So who has committed to the lecture series?

Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, who will speak at Dordt on Feb. 7th, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and businessman and radio host Herman Cain.

Dordt is actually one of three sites each speaker will fly to during their day long visits.

Those visits will come once a month through August.

The lecture series will wrap up with a debate on Nov. 19th in central Iowa.
