We’re all familiar with CPAC through its big, boisterous, place-to-be annual meeting of conservatives. Now, CPAC is sponsoring regional versions of their yearly meeting (a good move). The first ‘mini-CPAC’ will be held in Orlando, Florida on September 23, 2011.
Mitt Romney has been enlisted to help the American Conservative Union (ACU) expand its brand; he’s the first GOP candidate named to speak at CPAC FL.
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will address CPAC FL – the organization’s first in an inaugural series of regional events expanding on the legacy of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). CPAC FL will be held this fall in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, September 23, 2011.
“Governor Romney is a tested, conservative leader who continues to offer thoughtful, substantive free-market solutions in the wake of the disastrous economic agenda advanced by President Obama,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming him to CPAC FL in the Sunshine State this fall, as we expand the CPAC brand and further energize the national conservative movement.”
Just like the ACU’s marquee gathering in Washington, DC every spring – the nation’s largest annual gathering of grassroots activists – CPAC FL will bring national and state conservative leaders and grassroots activists together 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.
Mittheads in Florida and surrounding areas, save the date!
