WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Missouri U.S. Representatives Blaine Luetkemeyer, Jason Smith and Ann Wagner will address the 2013 regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, September 28, 2013. This announcement is the first of many speaker announcements prior to CPAC St. Louis.

“We are excited to welcome these respected, conservative Missouri Members of Congress to our 2013 regional CPAC in St. Louis,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to hearing them address the current issues facing Missourians and therefore providing important political tools to combat the liberal agenda.”

Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer represents the 13 counties that make up the 3rd Congressional District of Missouri, and is committed to representing the interests of the hard-working people by being a strong voice for them in Washington, D.C. Rep. Luetkemeyer also serves as vice chairman of the House Small Business Committee and is a member of the House Financial Services Committee.

During a Special Election in June of 2013, Jason Smith was elected to represent Missouri’s Eighth Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. As a member of the 113th Congress, Rep. Smith serves on the House Judiciary Committee and House Natural Resources Committee. He is a seventh-generation Missourian, a citizen-legislator, and a champion for the rights and values of farmers and rural Missourians.

Ann Wagner currently serves as the Representative for Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District. Prior to her Congressional seating Rep. Wagner served for nine years as a local committeewoman in Lafayette Township and went on to Chair the Missouri Republican Party. She also served as Co-Chairman of the Republican National Committee during the first term of President George W. Bush as well as U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg.

CPAC St. Louis, to be held Saturday, 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 values.

Media registration (including bloggers) will open on September 3, 2013.

Taking place in Washington, D.C., each year and now in regions across the country, CPAC educates, brings together and energizes thousands of attendees and all of the leading conservative organizations and speakers who impact conservative thought in the nation.

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.
