Liberty University was a hot spot Saturday after two popular names in politics visited the campus.
On one side of the campus was Herman Cain; on the other, Sarah Palin.
Cain was at Barnes and Nobles signing his newly released book, This Is Herman Cain.
Palin was at the Vines Center, sharing her spiritual testimony for the Extraordinary Women's Convention.
Hundreds of people lined up, waiting to meet Herman Cain; a republican presidential candidate who won the Florida straw poll on September 24th.
Before Cain started shaking hands and autographing books, he had much to say about the nationwide protests against Wall Street. "Wall Street is not the one that's saying let's spend another 450 billion dollars that won't work. It is the White House and the democrats that want to spend our way to prosperity," said Cain.
Cain says he chose to visit Liberty University because he loves the fact that the school has maintained its Christian beliefs, in terms of the activities programs offered on campus.
One program that attracted more than ten-thousand people Saturday afternoon was the Extraordinary Women's Convention, with special guest Sarah Palin.
This is Palin's first visit to Liberty University and everyone welcomed her by lining the stage to hear her spiritual testimony.
Palin says her faith was tested after having two miscarriages. “My two options were to shake my fist at God and blame him for taking away my child. I could turn away from Him and doubt his goodness. Or I could hold tight to that promise in Jeremiah 29:11; God promises that he knows the plans that He has for us," said Palin.
Those who attended the convention say they're hoping to grow spiritually from other women’s inspirational stories.
Just last month, Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann were also speakers at Liberty University.
