ACU Announces Governor Bob McDonnell to Address CPAC 2012

January 31, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell will address CPAC 2012 – the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, February 9 – Saturday, February 11, 2012, in Washington, DC.  CPAC will highlight several of America’s leading chief state executives, including Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

“Governor McDonnell’s leadership in Virginia is evidence that conservative solutions work. His successful agenda for job creation, economic development, education reform and innovation in government provides a stark contrast to President Obama’s failed liberal policies. We are honored to welcome Governor McDonnell to CPAC 2012,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “In less than two weeks, the American Conservative Union will host 2012’s premier venue for highlighting and advancing conservative leaders, principles and polices.”

Every year, the ACU brings thousands of grassroots conservatives and conservative leaders together in Washington, DC for three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values. Based on this year’s theme, “We STILL Hold These Truths”, CPAC 2012 will feature grassroots training and strategizing to strengthen the conservative movement and ensure conservatives have the resources and tools necessary to defeat the Obama agenda in November.  The full agenda is now available online at www.cpac.org.

CPAC 2012 features an all-star line-up that also includes former Governors Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Andrew Breitbart, Herman Cain, Ann Coulter, Senators Jim DeMint and Marco Rubio, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Laura Ingraham, Congressmen Jim Jordan, Steve King, Paul Ryan and Allen West, Michael Medved, former Senator Rick Santorum and more.

The American Conservative Union is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization and was founded in 1964. The ACU has hosted CPAC in the Nation’s Capital since 1973.  Admission tickets and hotel accommodations for CPAC 2012 are going quickly.

Please note: online registration for media and blogger credentials for CPAC 2012 ends February 3, so register today at www.cpac.org.  All bloggers wishing to receive credentials must register by February 3.
