Conservative political commentator, writer, and television personality Tucker Carlson will deliver the keynote address at a gala fundraiser thrown by the Center for Christian Virtue (CCV) in Cleveland, Ohio, next month.
The Cleveland Celebration Gala for the Center for Christian Virtue, Ohio’s largest Christian public policy organization, will take place at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Tower, on September 21st. According to the Center for Christian Virtue, it will be an evening of music, inspiration, and fellowship.
The Center for Christian Virtue is one of the most prominent advocates for conservative social issues at the Ohio Statehouse.
According to the Center for Christian Virtue, the September event is the first Celebration Gala it has hosted in the city of Cleveland. The public policy organization held a similar Celebration Gala in Cincinnati, Ohio, earlier this summer featuring former Vice President Mike Pence, who spoke about the pro-life battle facing both Ohio and the nation.
The Ohio Star reached out to the Center for Christian Virtue for details on Carlson’s topic of discussion at the gala but did not receive a reply before press time.
Center for Christian Virtue President Aaron Baer said that the first-ever Cleveland Celebration Gala will be a historic night.
“The one and only Tucker Carlson is coming to Cleveland with the Center for Christian Virtue. It will be a historic night,” Baer said.
Carlson is a conservative political commentator whose new show, Tucker on Twitter, has been viewed hundreds of millions of times since it started in June.
Before that, Carlson hosted FOX News Channel’s prime-time cable news program Tucker Carlson Tonight bringing in the highest program ratings in the network’s history. Carlson is known for interviewing prominent businessmen such as Elon Musk and Dana White and major political figures such as former President Donald Trump.
Trump announced on Friday that he will not be attending the first Republican presidential debate in Milwaukee next week and will sit down for an interview with Carlson that day instead.
Before that, Carlson hosted other programs on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN. He has authored two New York Times bestsellers, “Ship of Fools” and “The Long Slide.”
Carlson is widely recognized for his success in helping to bring conservative viewpoints and vocabulary into the mainstream of American politics. On the issues, he has repeatedly questioned the efficiency of COVID vaccines and has stated his opposition to both abortion and gun control.
