ACU and Citizens United: Mike Huckabee to Be Keynote Speaker at CPAC 2012
America’s largest gathering of conservative activists and conservative leaders will be Feb. 9-11 in Washington, D.C. Huckabee will present his keynote address on Friday afternoon, Feb. 10, followed by a special screening of Citizen United Productions’ recently announced pro-life documentary, “The Gift of Life.”
"We are proud to welcome our friend Mike Huckabee back to CPAC. Governor Huckabee was a tremendous chief executive of Arkansas for nearly a decade and has continued his success in the public arena as a best-selling author, influencing hundreds of thousands of grass-roots conservatives across the nation,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “The American Conservative Union looks forward to hosting CPAC next February as the premier venue to highlight conservative leaders, principles and policies in 2012.”
Every year, the ACU brings thousands of grass-roots conservatives and conservative leaders together in Washington, D.C., for three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values. Citizens United, a returning partner in CPAC, has recently teamed with Governor Huckabee to produce “The Gift of Life,” hosted by the former Arkansas governor. This pro-life film is an inspirational documentary that explores the sanctity of life as a moral issue and looks at the lives of individuals on the front lines of the pro-life movement in America, including those who were nearly victims of abortion.
“Governor Huckabee is one of the conservative movement’s leading voices for preserving traditional values and advancing common-sense government reform solutions,” added David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “We are proud to continue our partnership with him on projects to advance conservative causes, including CPAC 2012.”
