The “Suite Tea” Breakfast with Patriots Andrew Breitbart, Anita MonCrief and Brandon Darby

October 05, 2011 J

If you weren't at CPAC FL in Orlando then you may have missed one of the highlghts of the week - the "Suite Tea" breakfast we held at The Peabody Hotel. Tickets for the event were "sold out" as quickly as we could make them available and for good reason -- seeing these three, true patriots speak was incredible. Their stories from years of working for the left are sometimes shocking, eye-opening and always inspiring.

If you missed the breakfast, or even if you were there but want to see the insipiring speakers again, now is your chance. Here are the excerpts from the breakfast, with speakers (and their Twitter handles so you can follow them):

Grassroots Activists Make Their Mark in Orlando

September 28, 2011 J

As national attention focused on Florida last week, AFP-Florida prepared for three days of jam packed events in Orlando. Hundreds of you joined us for the Presidency 5 Presidential Debate and straw poll, the speeches and educational sessions of CPAC, and one of the highlights of the weekend – an amazing “Suite Tea” Breakfast with Andrew Breitbart.


Patriots were out in Orlando in full force! We were on-sight distributing t-shirts and educational materials, as well as our ever-so-popular “It’s the Spending, Stupid!” buttons. We handed out 3,500 of them and they were a prominent fixture on lapels and sweaters throughout the weekend. If you have a picture of you and your friends wearing one of our buttons or shirts please email us at info.fl@afphq.org. You can see the pictures we already have posted of the P5 booth and attendees here.
