WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced former Presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry 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. The ACU today also published online the full CPAC 2012 Agenda, now available at www.cpac.org.
“Through an agenda built on tax and spending cuts and pro-growth policies, Governor Rick Perry has made Texas a leader in job creation and economic development while serving as a national voice for preserving states’ rights. We are honored to host Governor Perry at CPAC 2012,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Next week, 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. You can now view the full CPAC 2012 Agenda, released today, 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, Governors Bobby Jindal, Rick Scott and Scott Walker and many 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.
