Faith & Freedom Conference Disrupted by Bomb Threat


The Faith & Freedom Conference in Washington, D.C. today was interrupted by reports of multiple bomb threats being called in.

Today multiple Republican presidential candidates, including Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum, spoke at the conference. Right after Santorum spoke, Faith & Freedom Coalition head Ralph Reed took the stage and said they need to evacuate the room because of threats and so the police can do a sweep.

Reporters there tweeted out what information they gleaned about the threats:

The evacuation just happened to occur right before George Pataki was scheduled to speak. He eventually spoke in a smaller room, but tweeted this out in the immediate aftermath of the evacuation:

C-SPAN was rolling when Reed told people to evacuate and they cleared out the room. You can watch the video here, via C-SPAN 2:
