Media Release – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R–KY) will address CPAC 2013 – the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.
“We are pleased to announce that Senator Rand Paul will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “In just two years, Rand Paul has already established himself as a strong, independent voice for conservatives in the U.S. Senate.”
Dr. Rand Paul was elected in 2010 as the junior United States Senator for Kentucky and has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility, and a warrior against government overreach. A graduate of Duke University School of Medicine, Paul was a practicing ophthalmologist in Bowling Green, KY, for 17 years. He is the son of former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas.
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.
