Former Presidential Candidate Visits Hastings, NE

He is a Republican who has run for President 3 times - the latest just this past year. Thursday night Alan Keyes was a featured speaker at a fundraiser for the Triple A Crisis Pregnancy Center. The fundraiser is an annual event. It supports the pregnancy center which is a Christian organization that counsels woman before and after giving birth. Keyes said he is putting politics aside Thursday night and here to support his pro–life belief. "What is involved is the heart and conscious of a woman. What is involved is the life of a child.

And what is involved above all is the simple preside that of all our liberty and dignity that we are created equal and endowed by God, not by human choice with our inalienable rights," said Keyes. Keyes also has some very strong opinions about President Obama. He ran against Obama for U.S Senate in Illinois back in 2004. Keyes doubts Obama is a U.S citizen and said he will ruin the country. "Obama is a radical communist and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it is coming true. He is going to destroy this country and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist," said Keyes.
