Artur Davis to be a Featured Speaker at CPAC Colorado on October 4

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) announced today that on the heels of his prime-time blockbuster speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, former Democratic U.S. Representative and former Co-Chair of Obama for America Artur Davis will be a featured speaker at CPAC Colorado.  CPAC Colorado, which will be held in Denver the day after the first Presidential debate, serves as the second in a series of regional conferences in 2012 designed to to mobilize Mountain West conservatives while highlighting conservative stars and issues in the region.

“We are thrilled that Artur Davis will be a featured speaker at CPAC Colorado,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas.  “He gave a rousing speech at the Republican National Convention and no doubt will inspire conservatives at CPAC Colorado. Just four years ago, Artur seconded President Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.  He will return to Denver next month with a new mission to help us chart the right course for America and support a Presidential candidate who will focus on getting American back to work and building a strong economy.”

The ACU is teaming up with CitizenLink, The Heritage Foundation, the Independence Institute, and Common Sense Policy Roundtable 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. Featured speakers for CPAC Colorado include Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, business leader and ACU Board member Carly Fiorina, American Spectator Senior Editor John Fund, National Rifle Association President and ACU Board member David Keene, U.S. Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO), syndicated talk radio host Dana Loesch, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and others.

Invited speakers include: U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann, Glenn Beck, Puerto Rico Governor Luis Fortuño, Hugh Hewitt, Laura Ingraham, Chuck Norris, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Massachusetts Governor and GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney, U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, and many others.
