In 1973, a small group of conservative activists met in Washington to discuss the future of the conservative movement.
This meeting, convened by the American Conservative Union, resolved that an annual event was needed to rally conservatives, share strategies and promulgate and crystallize the best of the conservative thought in America. This meeting was thus the birth of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
In 1974, then-Governor Ronald Reagan was the featured speaker at the first CPAC Presidential Banquet. President Reagan’s 1974 speech set a strong, uncompromisingly pro-freedom agenda for the conservatives, building upon the foundation established by Senator Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign a decade earlier.
This speech and this CPAC were to become the catalysts for building a grassroots movement which has now, after 40 years, culminated in conservatism emerging as the dominant American political philosophy.
Taking place in Washington, D.C. each year, and now in regions across the country, CPAC educates, brings together and energizes thousands of attendees and all of the leading conservative organizations and speakers who impact conservative thought in the nation. From Presidents of the United States to college students, CPACs have become the place to find our nation’s current and future leaders and sets the conservative agenda each year.

Jawbreaker candidate Berntsen hopes to slay Conservatives in Schumer Bid. Lughead does not even vote!
On “Capitol Tonight,” Gary-come- lately to the U.S Senate Race, Gary Berntsen waxed about how he wanted to “kill” the Conservative Party – I suppose because he failed to gain the Party’s support in his 11th hour bid. All the more reason to support Jay Townsend, the NYS Conservative Party candidate against Chuck Schumer. Check out this joker’s rant at the link below. Berntsen’s rantings are even more outrageous given the fact that he first registered to vote in NYS this past January. Check out Maggie Haberman’s expose at the link below.
” WHAT DOES HE KNOW OF THE PARTY, ITS SUCCESSES OR THE PIVOTAL ROLE THE PARTY HAS PLAYED IN NEW YORK POLITICS. HIS VOTE APPARENTLY FOR HIMSELF IN THIS YEAR’S PRIMARY WILL BE THE FIRST HE HAS CAST SINCE 2006 AND HIS FIRST EVER IN NEW YORK STATE. NOT VERY MUCH TO RECOMMEND HIM”, SAID BROOKLYN PARTY CHAIRMAN KASSAR
