From the Phil Moffett campaign:
Republicans assembling in Washington D.C. next month for the nation’s largest annual conservative convention will get a double dose of Kentucky Tea Party speakers during their three day event.
“Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is a great opportunity for any American conservative,” Kentucky Tea Party activist David Adams said. “This year is special because Senator Rand Paul is a featured speaker and Republican Tea Party gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett will be there to introduce him.”
“This is the Kentucky Tea Party’s finest hour,” Adams said. “Rand’s victory last year took a lot of hard work from a lot of good people across the country. Having Phil recognized and included like this shows there is real staying power in the movement and that Kentucky is right in the thick of it.”
“I think the invitation speaks for itself,” Phil Moffett said. “The Tea Party’s growing role in national politics combined with my race for governor being widely viewed as the country’s most important campaign in 2011 make it a natural that we should be center stage at the most high-profile national event for conservatives.”
The event is sponsored by American Conservative Union. ACU spokesman Ian Walters admitted the inclusion of a political newcomer like Moffett is unusual.
“Phil Moffett must have some very well-connected conservative friends,” Walters said.
CPAC will be held February 10-12 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington D.C. Moffett and Paul will speak February 10 starting at 3:45 pm.
