Personal Liberty will cover this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference with ongoing posts, pictures, tweets and Facebook updates to keep our readers apprised of what the Nation’s top conservative leaders envision for the year ahead.
We will provide ongoing dispatches from CPAC beginning Thursday, including interviews with attendees and leaders within the American conservative movement.
All the while, Personal Liberty Digest™ coverage of the event will pay special attention to where the libertarian-leaning conservatives who make up so much of our reader base appear to fit in among the crowd.
The gathering of conservative activists, which convenes this week in National Harbor, Md., was founded in 1973 by the American Conservative Union and Young Americans for Freedom. That first year, a little more than 100 attendees gathered in Washington, D.C., and were treated to a keynote address from California Governor Ronald Reagan.
This year, as CPAC celebrates 41 years and the American Conservative Union reaches the ripe old age of 50, as many as 11,000 attendees are expected. And don’t let the event’s age fool you into thinking the conservative base is on its way to extinction — more than half of those attendees will be under 30.
