Congressman Doug Lamborn announced Thursday that he will be speaking at the American Conservative Union's Regional Political Action Conference in Denver this October.
The third term Republican Representative from Colorado's 5th Congressional District will share the stage with GOP heavyweights Gov. Jan Brewer (AZ), Sen. John McCain(AZ), Sen. Orrin Hatch (UT) and Congressman Darrell Issa (CA).
Founded by William F. Buckley, the American Conservative Union is an umbrella organization for the modern American conservative movement. The group's annual CPAC convention in Washington was frequented by President Ronald Reagan and has become a regular who's-who gathering of Republican leaders.
"It is a huge honor to share the stage with some of our nation's great political thinkers and leaders," Lamborn stated in a news release. "With the national spotlight once again on Colorado during this presidential election year, our state's conservative voters have a unique opportunity to direct the national debate."
The Denver conference will be the group's third regional convention and is scheduled for October 4, the day after the first presidential debate. The event will be held at the Crown Plaza Denver International Airport.
Other invited speakers include Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Fox News Host Sean Hannity, conservative radio personality Laura Ingraham, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Senator Marco Rubio, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
