ACU Announces Governor Scott Walker to Address CPAC 2013

January 28, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will address CPAC 2013 – the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.

“I am honored to welcome Governor Scott Walker back to the CPAC stage in March,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “As the first governor in American history to win a recall election, Scott Walker has galvanized conservatives around the nation united against government waste and Big Labor, and in favor of balanced budgets and lower taxes.”

Wisconsin’s 45th Governor Scott Walker proposed bold reforms that eliminated the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes and gave school districts and local governments the tools needed to balance their budgets. These profound changes have saved Wisconsin taxpayers more than $1 billion. As a result, property taxes on a median valued home have gone down for the first time in 12 years. Prior to his election as governor, Scott Walker served in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1993 until becoming Milwaukee County Executive from 2002 – 2010 where he reduced the county’s debt by 30% and authored nine budgets without increasing property taxes.

CPAC will be held March 14-16, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, offering attendees three days 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.

Media registration (including bloggers) will open on February 1, 2013. The CPAC 2013 schedule and list of confirmed speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Previously announced confirmed featured speakers include: Former U.S. Representative Artur Davis, former Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuño, U.S. Senator Mike Lee, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey and Former U.S. Representative Allen West.

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.
