ACU Endorses Trump Debate, Says GOP Candidates Should Attend

The American Conservative Union, the nation’s leading conservative organization, strongly endorses the Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate.

The ACU, host of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), will be a sponsor of the debate.

“The American Conservative Union is proud to sponsor the upcoming Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate," ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said Tuesday. The Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate is scheduled for December 27 in Des Moines, Iowa.

“Debates have already played a key role in this nominating process and present our best opportunity for comparing and contrasting candidates on core conservative issues," Cardenas said. "As the critical Iowa Caucuses quickly approach, we must continue vetting the field to ensure conservatives put forward a tested, competent leader to challenge President Obama next fall.

“We strongly encourage all Republican presidential candidates to participate.

“This will be a serious debate focused on serious issues," Cardenas added. "Conservatives across the nation will appreciate a debate hosted by a trusted conservative media outlet like Newsmax that includes a spirited conversation with the candidates, led by Donald Trump, a crowd favorite among CPAC attendees.”

The ACU’s endorsement comes on the heels of the endorsement Tuesday of Grover Norquist and his influential Americans for Tax Reform. Norquist urged all GOP candidates to attend and his group has also agreed to sponsor the event.
