BREAKING: Conservative Conference in D.C. Evacuated Over Bomb Threats Against GOP Pres. Candidates

Just coming across the wires the Associated Press is reporting that a bomb threat against the Republican candidates for President who were appearing at a conservative conference in Washington D.C. forced the event to evacuate the building.

D.C. police told the planners and attendees of the Faith and Freedom Coalition event being held in D.C. to evacuate due to a “credible threat” against them…

Officials at the Faith and Freedom Coalition event said police believe there was a credible threat of danger in the main conference ballroom. Attendees were moved to another part of the hotel to allow authorities to sweep the ballroom for signs of danger.

Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Aquita Brown said police were called to the area by a report of a suspicious package just before 1 p.m. and were investigating a threat at the scene. She gave no additional details.

The threat came on the second day of the organization’s three-day conference. Attendees evacuated calmly from the room where five Republican presidential contenders spoke earlier in the day. One was on the agenda for later Friday

We live is scary times, don’t we?
