WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced the first round of speakers invited to appear at the 2013 regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis, Missouri. Among the many speakers invited to appear are:

 

“As we host our 2013 regional CPAC, we are excited to feature some powerhouse leaders in that region who have upheld conservative principles in their respective states,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Each of the invited speakers have established a credible reputation in the movement and we’re pleased to invite them to address top conservative thinkers, policymakers, authors and media as well as thousands of conservative leaders, activists and students in St. Louis.”

CPAC St. Louis, to be held September 28, 2013, at the St. Charles Convention Center, will provide a day of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional American values.  The ACU has hosted CPAC in the Nation’s Capital since 1973, and it now stands as the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the country.  For additional information, visit our website at conservative.org/cpac2013, on Facebook at facebook.com/CPACNews, or on Twitter at @cpacnews and #CPACSTL. Media registration (including bloggers) will be available on September 03, 2013.

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For almost fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
