During the last presidential election, a group of Religious Right millionaires formed an organization called United In Purpose with the intent of mobilizing "40 million out of the estimated 60 million evangelicals in the United States to vote" over the next ten years. The organization played a role in Gov. Rick Perry's "The Response" prayer rally and in organizing Religious Right mobilization conferences throughout the country ahead of the 2012 election through a project called Champion The Vote.
Obviously, that election did not turn out as the group had hoped and the organization seemingly disappeared not long thereafter. But today, United In Purpose announced its return with an email alerting activists that it is organizing a "Voter Mobilization Strategy Summit" to take place in Dallas in March that will feature the likes of Jim Garlow, Rick Scarborough, David Barton, and Glenn Beck:
If you haven’t already marked your calendar for UiP’s Voter Mobilization Strategy Summit on March 25-26 in Dallas, please do! Leaders of conservative organizations from around the country will gather to brainstorm and strategize on how to get out the vote in 2014. Featured presenters include Glenn Beck, George Barna, and David Barton.
