WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the American Conservative Union (ACU) kicked off the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) in Washington, D.C. The three-day conference of America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists started with remarks by Al Cardenas, Chairman of the ACU.
“CPAC 2013 was President Reagan’s favorite conference. He saw it as family.” Continuing, he quoted Reagan saying “those who can’t subscribe to principles…let them go.” Urging unity, he spoke directly to libertarians, members of the Tea Party, and conservatives saying “We cannot succeed without coming together as one.”
Watch his full remarks via YouTube here.
Please note that the schedule is updated daily and available on our new CPAC 2013 website under “Program.”
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.
