Though there were no signs of Gov. Rick Scott or Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll on the initial agenda of CPAC Florida, the two have recently been added to the event.
In a press release sent out today, the American Conservative Union announced the addition of the two, touting a job well done by Scott.
“In less than a year on the job, Rick Scott has made good on his promises to Floridians, lowering taxes, reducing government spending and promoting economic development in the Sunshine State. Under the leadership of Governor Rick Scott and Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, Florida is implementing pro-growth policies to accelerate job creation, standing in stark contrast to President Obama’s liberal agenda – one that has failed our economy and our country,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas in a press release. “The ACU is honored to host our first regional CPAC in the critical state of Florida and highlight the State’s conservative leaders.”
In recent months, Scott has been labeled “the most unpopular governor in America” due to his incredibly low approval ratings.
Also on the list of registered speakers are conservative pundit Ann Coulter, state Attorney General Pam Bondi and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam. Among the panel discussions being held are: “The State of the Conservative Union: The Present & Future of the Conservative Movement & the Tea Party“ and ”Freedom, Competition & Schools: How Florida is Leading the Next Generation of Bold Education Reform.”
CPAC FL will be held in Orlando on Fri., Sept. 23.
