WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) as a featured speaker at the 2013 regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013.
“I am pleased to welcome Senator Blunt to address his home state at CPAC St. Louis,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Senator Blunt has been a leading culture warrior, as the Chairman of the Values Action Team, where he fights for families and is a strong voice for the rights of the unborn.”
Building on a background as a public servant, university president, and teacher, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt was elected by the people of Missouri to the Senate in 2010. From 1996-2008, the people of Southwest Missouri overwhelmingly elected Blunt seven times to the U.S. House of Representatives. Less than one year after he was sworn into the U.S. Senate, Blunt was chosen by his colleagues to serve as a member of the Senate leadership as the Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.
CPAC St. Louis will be held Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at the St. Charles Convention Center. It 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.
