WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced U.S. Congressman Paul Ryan (R–WI) 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 Congressman Paul Ryan will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “From the day he was elected, Chairman Ryan has been a strong voice in Congress for pro-growth, free market economic policies and has always been a CPAC favorite.”
A fifth-generation Wisconsin native, Paul Ryan is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee and a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee. He was the 2012 Republican Vice Presidential candidate. In Congress, Ryan has put forward a specific plan to tackle our looming fiscal crisis, driven by the explosion of entitlement spending.
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.
