ACU announces U.S. Representatives Tim Huelskamp (KS-1), Peter Roskam (IL-6) and Joe Walsh (IL-8) to address CPAC Chicago

May 9, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas announced today that U.S. Representatives Tim Huelskamp (KS-1), Peter Roskam (IL-6) and Joe Walsh (IL-8) 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. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6), 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.

“Republicans like Representative Huelskamp, Representative Roskam and Representative Walsh have been some of our most ardent champions in Congress working to stop or reverse many of the destructive policies pursued by this administration over its first term. They have held the Executive Branch accountable, supporting legislation that would cut waste and reduce the deficit,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We will be proud to welcome Representatives Huelskamp, Roskam and Walsh to CPAC Chicago next month as conservatives take the fight for the future of our country directly to President 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.
