Governor Bobby Jindal to Address CPAC for First-Time Ever

January 18, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal 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.  The newly re-elected Governor Jindal held his second-term inauguration this week, following a landslide victory last fall where he swept nearly 70 percent of the Pelican State vote. This will be his first appearance at CPAC.

“Governor Jindal is one of the most innovative and effective chief executives in America. Evidenced by his massive reelection victory last fall, it is clear voters in Louisiana and throughout the country are hungry for proven conservative solutions to meet our greatest challenges,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “As we ready for the critical 2012 election, I’m honored to welcome Governor Jindal to the Conservative Political Action Conference for the first-time ever.”

Every year, the ACU brings thousands of grassroots conservatives and conservative leaders together in Washington, DC for three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values.

CPAC 2012 features an all-star line-up that also includes former Governors Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, Ann Coulter, Senators Jim DeMint and Marco Rubio, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Laura Ingraham, Congressmen Jim Jordan, Steve King, Paul Ryan and Allen West, former Senator Rick Santorum, Governor 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.

A threat to the giant corporations of today because they are in their garage starting the company that will become the giant corporation of tomorrow.”
