Trump, DeSantis and more address Moms for Liberty conference
They call themselves "joyful warriors" -- but this controversial group of conservative moms are mad and getting the attention of some of the Republican Party's most prominent politicians.
The members of Moms for Liberty, which formed just two years ago in Florida and has since branched out nationwide, say they're mad at their teachers, their principals, their president.
And now, as they see it, they're fighting back through school boards, local elections and -- if they get their way -- their next president.
The multi-day Moms for Liberty conference that began last week showcases how local issues like school curriculum and COVID-19 restrictions in the classroom can have tremendous, galvanizing influence among GOP and GOP-leaning voters.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, former President Donald Trump and former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley -- all of whom are seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination -- tried to woo nearly 700 attendees of the over 150,000-member group on Friday.
