ACU Announces British MEP Daniel Hannan to Address CPAC 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced British MEP Daniel Hannan will address CPAC 2012 – the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Daniel Hannan is a writer and journalist, and has been Conservative MEP for South East England since 1999. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, February 9 – Saturday, February 11, 2012, in Washington, DC.  The full CPAC 2012 Agenda is now available at www.cpac.org.

“Daniel Hannan is a courageous voice in England and across Europe for more freedom and smaller government. He has also sounded the warning bell for Americans on the dangerous path President Obama is leading our nation down when it comes to imitating European policies – from healthcare to entitlements to taxes. We are honored to welcome Daniel Hannan to the United States for CPAC 2012,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Next week, the American Conservative Union will host 2012’s premier venue for highlighting and advancing conservative leaders, principles and polices.”

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. Based on this year’s theme, “We STILL Hold These Truths”, CPAC 2012 will feature grassroots training and strategizing to strengthen the conservative movement and ensure conservatives have the resources and tools necessary to defeat the Obama agenda in November.  You can now view the full CPAC 2012 Agenda at www.cpac.org.

CPAC 2012 features an all-star line-up that also includes former Governors Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Andrew Breitbart, 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, Michael Medved, former Senator Rick Santorum, Governors Bobby Jindal, Rick Scott, Rick Perry 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 in the Nation’s Capital since 1973.  Admission tickets and hotel accommodations for CPAC 2012 are going quickly.
