ACU Announces U.S. Senator Ted Cruz to Address CPAC 2013

February 13, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas will address CPAC 2013 – the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.

“In just a few months, Ted Cruz has become a strong, independent conservative voice in the Senate,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Senator Cruz personifies the theme of this year’s CPAC — America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives.”

In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, he won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office. Senator Cruz formerly served as the Solicitor General of Texas, the state’s chief lawyer before the U.S. Supreme Court.

CPAC will be held March 14-16, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, offering three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional American values. For additional information, visit our website at conservative.org/cpac/, on Facebook at facebook.com/CPACNews, or on Twitter at @cpacnews and #CPAC2013. Media registration (including bloggers) is now open. For those who plan to cover the event, please request credentials at http://cpac2013media.eventbrite.com. The CPAC 2013 schedule and list of confirmed speakers will be announced soon.

Previously announced confirmed featured speakers include: U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, former U.S. Representative Artur Davis, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, NRA President and ACU Board Member David Keene, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre, U.S. Senator Mike Lee, U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, U.S. Senator Tim Scott, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, former U.S. Representative Allen West, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and U.S. Senator Ron Johnson.

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. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
