ACU Announces First Round of Speakers Invited to CPAC 2013
Celebrating 40 years of CPACs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today announced the first round of speakers invited to appear at CPAC 2013 – the annual national Conservative Political Action Conference. Among the many speakers invited to appear are:

Jeb Bush, former Governor (R-FL)
Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator-Elect (R-TX)
Jim DeMint, U.S. Senator (R-SC)
Susana Martinez, Governor (R-NM)
Ron Paul, U.S. Representative (R-TX)
Marco Rubio, U.S. Senator (R-FL)
Paul Ryan, U.S. Representative (R-WI)
Tim Scott, U.S. Senator-Designate (R-SC)

“As we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of CPAC, we are excited to present a conference focused on our timeless principles but also explore and define the future of the conservative movement,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Each of the invited speakers plays a critical role in the movement and we’re pleased to invite them to address the nation’s top conservative thinkers, policymakers, authors and media as well as thousands of conservative leaders, activists and students at CPAC 2013.”

The 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference, to be held March 14-16, 2013, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, will provide three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional American values. The ACU has hosted CPAC in the Nation’s Capital since 1973, and it now stands as the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the country.

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For almost fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
