Andrew Breitbart to Be a Featured Speaker at CPAC 2012

January 22, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Andrew Breitbart will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2012 – the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference.  America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, February 9 – Saturday, February 11, 2012, in Washington, DC.

“Andrew Breitbart is one of the most influential conservative media voices in America today, and we are honored to welcome him back to CPAC. From founding and publishing some of the leading conservative news and opinion sites to his news-breaking coverage of liberal scandals, Andrew is one of the brightest and most exciting stars in the conservative movement today,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas.  “Next month, the American Conservative Union is proud to host CPAC 2012 – the nation’s premier event for showcasing conservative principles, policies and leaders.”

Andrew Breitbart is publisher of the news portals Breitbart.com and Breitbart.tv. In January 2009, Breitbart broke the ACORN child sex trafficking scandal, and in 2011, Breitbart broke the “Weinergate” scandal that lead to the resignation of New York Representative Anthony Weiner.   Additionally, Andrew Breitbart is a two-time best-selling author.  He co-wrote Hollywood, Interrupted. His new book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World!, also a New York Times bestseller, is in stores now.

”As the battle is waged within the Republican Party over who will lead the charge against President Barack Obama and the radical left’s hostile takeover of America,” Breitbart said, “we cultural and political combatants within the conservative movement must come together to find common cause. There is nothing wrong with fighting each other, openly and freely, about the great ideas of our time. But never before has party and movement unity been so important. I look forward to speaking at CPAC as a symbol that even our most seasoned warriors must seek peace with those we have vigorously challenged.”

CPAC 2012 features an all-star line-up that also includes former Governors Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Ann Coulter, Senators Jim DeMint and Marco Rubio, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Laura Ingraham, Congressmen Jim Jordan, Steve King, Paul Ryan and Allen West, Oliver North, former Senator Rick Santorum, Governors Bobby Jindal and Scott Walker and many more.

The American Conservative Union is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization and was founded in 1964. The ACU has hosted CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, in the Nation’s Capital since 1973. For more information on the ACU, visit conservative.org.
