Jim DeMint to lead Heritage town hall in Tampa



Former Sen. Jim DeMint, now president of the Heritage Foundation, will host a "strategic gathering of conservatives" in Tampa on Aug. 21. The main topic: Obamacare.

"Members of Congress are leaving Washington in August to head home — but few of them are hosting town hall events to hear what their constituents are saying," reads an announcement. "So Heritage Action is standing in the gap: bringing education on the critical issues and our message of Congressional accountability to critical cities across the country—including Tampa."

It promises attendees can "see the growing conservative movement in Tampa; hear the latest on the critical fight to save this country; and learn how you can break through the Washington Establishment."

DeMint will "explain why he left the United States Senate to lead a conservative policy organization like The Heritage Foundation."

The 7 p.m. event will be held at Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore.
