The 2012 Saddle Up Texas Straw Poll initiative is trying to provide constitutionally-grounded Texans a voice in the 2012 Presidential Primary race before the traditional bias of the early caucus/primary States sets in.
The three-day straw poll will take place January 12 -14 at Minute Maid Park, in Houston, Texas. This even is geared towards Texas GOP voters, and will include speeches by Republican presidential candidates, followed by a straw poll on Saturday. It will also give attendees the opportunity to obtain political action training, and hear inspirational themes from conservative speakers and leaders from around the nation.
Music will also be provided by Kevin Black and Karl Brunig, along with some highly endorsed food! Profits from this event will go to area veterans organizations, such as the Texas Wounded Warrior and the Lone Survivor Foundation, and Get Out The Vote efforts.

Dick Armey, FreedomWorks
