The American Conservative Union -- which puts on one of the biggest gatherings for conservatives in DC every year -- says Mitt Romney will address CPAC FL – the organization’s first in a series of regional events "expanding on the legacy of the Conservative Political Action Conference."
CPAC FL will be held Sept. 23 in Orlando. ACU chairman Al Cardenas, who backed Romney in 2008, calls him 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."
Cardenas says CPAC FL will bring national and state conservative leaders and grassroots activists together for a day of "blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities."
Invited CPAC FL speakers include "hometown rising stars Marco Rubio and Allen West," 2012 presidential candidates "and many more conservative heroes."
