ACU Announces Governor Bobby Jindal to Address CPAC Chicago
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today announced Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will be a featured speaker at CPAC Chicago – the first of two regional Conservative Political Action Conferences slated for 2012. Scheduled for Friday, June 8, 2012, CPAC Chicago will energize and mobilize Midwestern conservatives, giving them the tools needed to defeat the liberal agenda in 2012, while also featuring national conservative leaders and highlighting rising conservative stars in the region.
“Governor Jindal’s record of results and continuing popularity in the Pelican State are evidence conservative solutions work. From economic development to education and governmental reform, Governor Jindal continues to challenge the status quo as one of America’s most impressive chief executives,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We are proud to welcome Governor Jindal to Chicago this summer as conservatives take the fight for the future of our country directly to President Barack Obama’s backyard.”
The ACU has hosted CPAC since 1974, and it now stands as the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the nation. When CPAC heads back on the road this summer for its second-ever regional event, ACU is teaming up with United to Restore Freedom (URF), home of Right Nation, and The Heartland Institute to bring national and regional leaders together with local grassroots activists for 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.
CPAC Chicago will be held just minutes from O’Hare International Airport at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, on June 8, 2012.
