Cherilyn Eagar for US Senate (UT) - Phyllis Schlafly

Phyllis Schlafly Comes to Utah

Eagar For Senate fundraiser features a visit by the First Lady of Conservatism

Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the National Eagle Forum and first lady of the conservative movement, is coming to Salt Lake on Saturday, January 16. She will address the Utah Eagle Forum’s annual convention and be the guest of senate candidate Cherilyn Eagar at a private reception that evening. Mrs. Schlafly’s Eagle Forum was the first national organization to endorse Eagar’s senate run against Sen. Bob Bennett.

Eagar says, “Because of Phyllis’ leadership, thousands of women rallied to protect women and the traditional family from a federal power grab. Phyllis has been a role model for me throughout my life, and I’m honored to have her endorsement. The Eagle Forum — nationally and in this state — has been a leader in conservative issues over the years. I deeply admire the strength, courage and class of this lady, who has done more to protect women, children and the family than any other woman in my lifetime. At age 85, she’s still going strong as ever.”

Mrs. Schlafly first came to national prominence in the 1970s by fighting the Equal Rights Amendment. She formed the National Eagle Forum to lead the pro-family movement, publishes The Phyllis Schlafly Report and remains a popular lecturer. One of the “ground troops” in the ERA battle was Cherilyn Eagar, then just starting her fight for conservative principles, which continues today. The two have been close friends ever since.

The reception will be held at the Rhodes Bake-n-Serv corporate headquarters, 5121 Murray Blvd., Murray, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Mrs. Schlafly will be speaking personally with guests before attending a dinner at the Eagle Forum Convention. The suggested minimum donation for those who’d like to meet Mrs. Schlafly is $100.

The Eagle Forum Convention opens at the Larry H. Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College in Sandy at 9:00 a.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m. Representatives Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz, State Senator Chris Buttars, State Representative Brad Daw and members of the Patrick Henry Caucus will speak. At 2:30 p.m., the U.S. Senate candidates will answer questions from the audience.
