ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on the Passing of Conservative Warrior Andrew Breitbart

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today issued the following statement regarding the passing of conservative movement leader Andrew Breitbart.

“Andrew Breitbart was one of the most influential, fearless and passionate conservative voices in America. His tragic passing is a loss the conservative movement will feel deeply for years to come.

“From founding and publishing some of the leading conservative news outlets to his news-breaking coverage of some of the most important moments in recent political history, Andrew was a visionary. He never backed down from a fight, passionately defended his beliefs, exposed media bias and introduced conservative principles to a new generation of young Americans.

“We will miss our friend, the happy, courageous warrior, but learn from his example and continue battling for the causes of freedom, liberty and justice.

“The thoughts and prayers of hundreds of thousands of American Conservative Union members and supporters across the country are with Andrew’s family at this very difficult time.”

As we remember Andrew Breitbart today, please take a moment to view his final speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

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.
