St. Louis hosts conference on conservative principles

Wednesday, June 3, 2009 | 2:18 p.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — Phyllis Schlafly and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's son are among the notables who are gathering in St. Louis for a conference on conservative principles.

Minnesota Republican Norm Coleman will be the keynote speaker for the Conservative Heartland Leadership Conference, which runs Wednesday and Thursday at the Millennium Hotel in St. Louis.

Coleman's U.S. Senate term expired in January but he is still contesting the results that tipped the race to Democrat Al Franken by a few hundred votes.

Underwriting the event is the conservative American Issues Project, a nonprofit group that aired an ad linking candidate Barack Obama to 1960s radical William Ayers.

St. Louis attorney Ed Martin Jr. is the conference organizer and AIP's board president.
