WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas announced today that U.S. Senator Rand Paul will address CPAC Chicago – the first of two regional Conservative Political Action Conferences slated for 2012.
Scheduled for Friday, June 8, 2012, CPAC Chicago takes the fight for the future of America directly to President Barack Obama’s backyard. The event will energize and mobilize Midwestern conservatives, giving them the tools needed to defeat the liberal agenda in 2012, while also featuring national conservative leaders such as U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus among many others, and highlighting rising conservative stars in the region. The conference agenda, released today, may be found at http://conservative.org/cpacchicago/program/agenda/.
“Senator Paul is among America’s most strident advocates for small government and individual liberty in the United States Senate,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We are proud to welcome Senator Paul to Chicago this summer as conservatives take the fight for the future of our country directly to President Barack Obama’s backyard.”
The ACU has hosted CPAC since 1974, and it now stands as the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the nation. When CPAC heads back on the road this summer for its second-ever regional event, ACU is teaming up with United to Restore Freedom (URF), home of Right Nation, and the Heartland Institute to bring national and regional leaders together with local grassroots activists for a day of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities—all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values.
CPAC Chicago will be held just minutes from O’Hare International Airport at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, on June 8, 2012.

Founded in 1964, the ACU represents the views of Americans who are concerned with economic growth through lower taxes and reduced government spending and the issues of liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values and national security. Learn more at conservative.org.
