ACU Announces Oliver North, Wayne LaPierre to Address CPAC 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Oliver North, a combat decorated marine, FOX News Channel host and Chairman of Freedom Alliance, and Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Rifle Association of America, will both be featured speakers 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.

“We are proud to announce the addition of two great American patriots, Lieutenant Colonel North and Wayne LaPierre, to our outstanding line-up for CPAC 2012. Both are strong, influential voices for the cause of freedom and crowd favorites among the thousands of conservatives who gather in Washington each year for the Conservative Political Action Conference,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “In less than one month, the American Conservative Union looks forward to hosting 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.

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 in the Nation’s Capital since 1973.  Admission tickets and hotel accommodations for CPAC 2012 are going quickly.
