WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced a featured panel entitled “Can Social Conservatives and Libertarians Ever Get Along?” at the 2013 regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013. The panel will take place at 10:15 a.m.

“At a time when President Obama is leading the country off the economic, social, and foreign policy ‘cliff,’ I am confident that libertarians and social conservatives can find enough common ground to save the United States of America,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “This no-doubt lively panel at CPAC St. Louis will explore similarities and differences between conservatives and libertarians and the future of both movements.”

Featured speakers include:

Matthew Spalding, Ph.D., Vice President, American Studies and Director, B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics, The Heritage Foundation

Geoffrey Neale, Chairman, Libertarian Party

Douglas Bandow, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute

Moderator: Tom Minnery, Executive Director, CitizenLink

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. At regional CPACs, ACU highlights conservative leaders from the area and energizes and trains grassroots activists.
