The aspirations for this year's Western Conservative Summit are as big as, well, the American West, and this year's annual gathering features a lot of regional voices. Jeff Hunt. the summit's organizer and also the director of Colorado Christian University's Centennial Institute, says it's important that the voices of Western conservatives are heard in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, adding that they've been excluded from the national conversation. Hunt says that could ultimately have negative consequences moving forward.
