ACU Announces U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte and Tim Scott to Address CPAC 2013

February 7, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Tim Scott of South Carolina 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.

“We are pleased to welcome U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte and Tim Scott to the CPAC stage in March,” said Al Cardenas, ACU Chairman. “Senator Ayotte has quickly become a conservative leader on national security issues. The ACU Political Action Committee was delighted to be of the first to support Tim Scott for the U.S. Senate as he represents a new generation of conservative leaders and the future of the conservative movement.”

A native of New Hampshire and first female to serve as her state’s Attorney General, Senator Kelly Ayotte helped distinguish her state as the safest in the nation. Committed to public service, Ayotte was elected in 2010 to the U.S. Senate, winning 60 percent of the vote in her first bid for public office.

Growing up in poverty in North Charleston, South Carolina, Senator Scott learned the importance of faith, hard work and living within your means. From his humble beginnings, Scott went on to build one of the most successful Allstate agencies in the state and now in Washington supports economic freedom and entrepreneurship, advocating for smaller government, lower taxes and the restoration of fiscal responsibility. Prior to joining the Senate, Scott served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2011-2013, where he sat on the influential House Rules Committee. Scott also served on the Charleston County Council for 13 years, including four terms as Chair and in the South Carolina House of Representatives for two years where he was elected Chairman of the Freshman Caucus and House Whip.

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.
