May 14, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today encouraged interested media and bloggers to register for credentials to cover CPAC Chicago on Friday, June 8, the first of a series of regional Conservative Political Action Conferences in 2012.

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. This summer, CPAC is going back on the road. CPAC Chicago is taking the fight for the future of America directly to President Barack Obama’s backyard, the site of broken promises make to the American people on his election night in 2008. This one-day regional conference will energize and mobilize Midwestern conservatives, giving activists the tools needed to defeat the liberal agenda in 2012, while also highlighting rising conservative stars in the region.

Media & Blogger Credentialing:

CPAC Chicago is open to the press and the ACU welcomes members of the media and blogosphere to cover the conference’s full agenda of speeches, panels and special events.
