CPAC's September fling attracts Perry, Brownback and Lee

← return to Water Cooler

CPAC never sleeps. Really. The American Conservative Union is planning a follow up to its bodacious Conservative Political Action Conference in early spring that marked the 40th year for the annual rite of policy and political identity.

Part two takes place in Missouri in late September: CPAC St. Louis will be a day of “blockbuster speeches” at the St. Charles Convention Center, says Al Cardenas, the organization’s indefatigable chairman.

The event is attracting big names, even two months out. Among the confirmed speakers so far: Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, and Reps. Blaine Luetkemeyer, Jason Smith and Ann Wagner, all of Missouri. The invitation list for other luminaries is impressive.

“Stay tuned,” Mr. Cardenas advises.
