WASHINGTON DC — “From the atrocities of Planned Parenthood to the urgent need to rethink immigration policy as part of national security, Rep. Steve King is someone who will go to bat for conservatives in the toughest of fights,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Liberals would like to silence conservatives on these important issues, and conservatives must come together make our voices heard. Always willing to defend the rights of all Americans including the unborn, and always willing to make Americans re-think the difference between immigration and citizenship, we know that Rep. King’s voice is one that won’t be silenced and will bring both passion and principle to our flagship event, CPAC, next month,” said Schlapp.
Rep. Steve King, skipped Obama’s last SOTU address to pray in the Member’s chapel “to raise up a leader whom [God] will use to restore the Soul of America.”
“I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at CPAC this year,” said Rep. King. “Barack Obama has run our Constitutional Republic nearly off the rails. We need a president who will lead us in a renewal to restore the Soul of America. We have an opportunity to stand together for the right to life, the Rule of Law, secure our borders and refurbish the pillars of American Exceptionalism. I look forward to joining with Constitutional conservatives at CPAC 2016.”
CPAC 2016’s theme, “Our Time is Now,” was inspired from President Ronald Reagan’s 1981 CPAC address where he said: “Our time is now. Our moment has arrived. We stand together shoulder to shoulder in the thickest of the fight.” These state leaders exemplify that philosophy and CPAC 2016 is proud to have them offer their thoughts.
CPAC 2016 will be held March 2-5 at the Gaylord Hotel National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
The ACU would like to extend a special thanks to this year’s CPAC sponsors The National Rifle Association (NRA), The Heritage Foundation, One America News Network (OANN), The Daily Signal, Townhall Media, and Cobalt Media Group.
