Marco Rubio to Speak at CPAC 2010 - Largest Annual Gathering of Conservatives
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) - the nation's largest annual gathering of conservatives sponsored by the American Conservative Union Foundation in association with the Young America's Foundation and Human Events - announced that Marco Rubio, Florida's former Speaker of the House will deliver the keynote address to the expected 10,000 leaders, activists, and students in Washington, D.C. Former Speaker of the House Marco Rubio will appear on Thursday, February 18, 10:00 a.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road, NW, Washington, DC
"Our co-sponsors decided to invite Marco Rubio to keynote this year's conference because like previous keynotes Mike Pence and Paul Ryan, he is an articulate representative of a new generation of conservative leaders who we believe will have an incredible impact on the movement and the nation in the years ahead," said CPAC 2010 Chairman David A. Keene.
"Marco Rubio is making a name for himself the old-fashioned ways," said Keene, 'by standing up for our shared conservative principles, and recognizing that those common values can serve as the oxygen that feeds a grassroots on fire." Responding to his CPAC invite, Rubio said, "I am honored by the opportunity to address CPAC and discuss how freedom based on limited government has made America the most exceptional country in world history. At this critical time, we must ask our fellow citizens to join us in standing up for these timeless principles and against the radical agenda currently being proposed in Washington."
Marco Rubio will be joining other prominent conservatives, including Andrew Brietbart, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, and Rep. Ron Paul, among many others. CPAC is a project of the American Conservative Union Foundation, in association with Young America's Foundation and Human Events. The conference is co-sponsored by over 90 of the nation's leading conservative organizations.
