Richardson To Give "Major Speech" July 19 in Des Moines

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 554

New Mexico Governor and presidential candidate will Richardson will be back in Des Moines this coming Thursday, July 19 to deliver what his campaign is billing as a "major speech on Iraq and U.S. foreign policy."

Richardson will deliver the speech at a luncheon sponsored by the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy, a Des Moines-based policy study group. According to the group's web site, the speech is titled, "The Future Role of the United States in World Affairs."

I've attended previous events sponsored by the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy, featuring Joe Biden and Chris Dodd, and have been impressed both times. Given Bill Richardson's foreign policy stature, this speech will be a "must see" on my calendar.

Richardson's speech will be delivered at 11:30 AM on July 19 at the Des Moines Club, 34th Floor, Ruan Center, 666 Grand Avenue, Des Moines. Doors open at 11:00. The event is open to the public, but costs $25.00 at the door and an RSVP is required.
