(PRWEB) June 26, 2012 -- Always intriguing and raising issues that are underreported, CBN Chief Political Correspondent David Brody will lead a panel that provides insight into the “Teavangelical” movement that was so consequential in Election 2010 and has already ousted several high-profile politicians in 2012.
The panel, composed of respected reporters and pollsters, will be held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, June 27 at 10:00 am ET. The panel works to unravel this important but misunderstood phenomenon in the 2012 cycle. It will focus on the power and future of Teavangelicals--the Evangelical Christians who make more than half of the Tea Party. Panel members will debate the influence behind America’s newest political party and whether they actually pose a threat to the presidential hopes of Republican Mitt Romney.
