Alan Keyes

November 29, 2001

Alan Keyes' powerful conservative message resonates a vision of a morally based government founded on the principles embodied in our nation's Declaration of Independence. The Republican Presidential candidate received his Ph.D. in government affairs in 1979 from Harvard University. He served in the U. S. Foreign Service and on the staff of the National Security Council before being appointed Ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. He was Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs from 1985 to 1987.

Following his tenure with the State Department, Keyes was president of Citizens Against Government Waste. He was also a two-time Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Maryland as well as a two-time GOP Presidential candidate. Keyes' greatest exposure was through his dynamic and much extolled performances in the 2000 Republican Presidential debates.

Over the years, Keyes has reached a nationwide daily audience through "The Alan Keyes Show: America's Wake Up Call," his nationally syndicated radio program. A sought after speaker and media personality, Keyes has appeared on such shows as "Nightline," "CBS Morning News," "Today," and "MacNeil Lehrer Report." He is the author of critically acclaimed books, Masters of the Dream: The Strength and Betrayal of Black America, Our Character, Our Future: Reclaiming America's Moral Destiny, and While 1 Was Waiting at Gate 18: Conversations with Americans on the Pursuit of Life, Liberty, and the American Dream.

Keyes and his wife, Jocelyn, reside in Maryland with their three children.
