Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes threatened a legal battle if GOP Sen. Rand Paul tries to get his name on the ballot in 2016 in both his race for re-election and in the race for president. “The law is clear,” Ms. Grimes told WHAS-11. “You can’t be on the ballot twice for two offices.”
Senator Rand Paul joins list of Prominent Conservatives to Speak at CPAC 2015
EXCLUSIVE – One America News Network (OAN) reports that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joins the list of prominent conservative speakers to headline the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). In an exclusive statement to OAN, Senator Paul confirms his attendance, “It is always exhilarating to be able to address the young and energetic attendees of the Conservative Political Action Committee. In recent years, our Constitution has been under attack and CPAC 2015 will be a vital year for conservatives to fight back and start restoring the values of liberty.”
“We are pleased that Rand Paul will be joining us at CPAC 2015,” said American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Senator Paul is wisely spending his time reaching out to a wide array of audiences and promoting conservative values and principles that prove to help all Americans. It is only fitting that he also be highlighted at the most important conservative get-together of the year.”
The libertarian-minded Senator from Kentucky won last year’s 2014 CPAC straw poll with 31 percent of the vote – nearly three times the total of second-place finisher, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
“Now, more than ever, it is important that conservative voices be heard across America, and with the help of our cable news sponsor, One America News Network, we are certain to make a positive impact together that shapes America’s future,” Schlapp continued.
2015 marks the third year of One America News Network’s official Cable News Network Sponsorship of CPAC.
“As we move into the 2016 cycle, it’s critical that all political views have a platform from which to be heard – not just those the mainstream media endorse – and that platform is One America News Network,” said Herring Networks, Inc. President Charles Herring. (Herring Networks, Inc. is the parent company of One America News Network.) “For the third year in a row, we are proud to highlight the conservative voices at CPAC as the sole cable news network sponsor.”
Hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU), CPAC is an annual gathering of the nation’s top conservative leaders and supporters. This year’s events will take place February 25-28, 2015 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, just outside of Washington, D.C. One America News Network will be providing live event coverage, along with numerous exclusive interviews from headlining conservative leaders and expected 2016 presidential candidates.
Other previously announced speakers include Senator Ted Cruz, radio powerhouse Mark Levin and ACU Foundation Chairman Carly Fiorina. More information about this year’s lineup can be found at CPAC.org.
