CPAC of the West - for bloggers, too

I'm a big fan of Chuck Muth of Citizen Outreach and a while back he sent out a teaser about a conservative leadership conference in Nevada...

Here's an update - though dates are not yet included.

UPDATED: Here is the official website of the event which will be Oct. 11-13, 2007.

From the article:

While social issues often loom large at the annual Washington event, the Reno conference will have a distinctive Western flavor, said Nevada activist Chuck Muth, whose Citizen Outreach group is the event's primary sponsor.

"We're not going to be talking about abortion or gay marriage," said Muth, a former executive director of the American Conservative Union, the group that hosts the CPAC conference. "We're trying to promote the Barry Goldwater side of the movement rather than the Jerry Falwell side ."

The Reno conference is in keeping with Nevada's libertarian spirit and signals another step in the evolution of the state's political culture.

Among the expected topics are: illegal immigration, education, government spending, Internet regulation and labor unions.

Grover Norquist, the conservative Washington activist and head of Americans for Tax Reform, headlines the guest speakers.

Muth said he also hopes to attract nationally syndicated conservative commentators, including Michelle Malkin and Hugh Hewitt, and wants to snag former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as the keynote speaker.

Stay tuned!

The Las Vegas Sun failed to print the dates, which are publicly available.

Let me know if you need any other information.

Sounds like some of that "old time conservative religion."

Finally, someone conservative going back to conservatism's roots ;-)
