Senator Marco Rubio to Deliver Remarks at CPAC 2016
WASHINGTON DC — ACU and Sen. Rubio were able to work out a date for him to appear on the CPAC stage on Saturday, March 5th, 2016 at 11:35am(ET). Sen. Rubio has an ACU Lifetime Rating of 98% and is admired by conservative grassroots activists, many of whom came together to support his election to the U.S. Senate in 2010 and continue to support him today. The thousands of conservatives who come to CPAC this year will be eager to hear Sen. Rubio’s message on how best to restore our freedoms after seven years of President Obama’s attempts to “fundamentally transform” America.
“Sen. Marco Rubio has a strong conservative record and I’m honored to call him my friend,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “We are grateful that the conservative grassroots activists at CPAC will have the opportunity hear Sen. Rubio’s message at this important moment in history.”
