Romney will address CPAC Florida

Mitt Romney will address the inaugural convening of CPAC FL on Sept. 23 in Orlando, the American Conservative Union announced today.

“Governor Romney is 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,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming him to CPAC FL in the Sunshine State this fall, as we expand the CPAC brand and further energize the national conservative movement.”

Also invited -- but not yet confirmed -- are "hometown rising stars" Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Allen West, as well as other presidential candidates and "conservative heroes."

The gathering will be at the Orange County Convention Center.
