The American Conservative Union on Monday announced its list of the most promising young conservative leaders, with a list of its "10 under 40."

The 10 have been invited to speak at the regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis on Sept. 28.

And Missouri holds pride of place on the list with three of the 10 coming from the Show Me State.

"Our focus at CPAC has always been to showcase rising stars in the conservative movement and we are pleased to carry on that tradition in St. Louis," said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. "We look forward to hearing their thoughts on our conference’s theme: 'America’s Future, The Next Generation of Conservatives.'"

The three from Missouri on the list are state Reps. Eric Burlison, Paul Curtman and Casey Guernsey.

Wisconsin is represented twice with state Rep. Tyler August and Milwaukee Board Supervisor Deanna Alexander.

Rounding out the Top 10 are Indiana state Sen. Carlin Yoder, and state Reps. Stefani Carter of Texas, Elise Hall of Oklahoma, Tom Leonard of Michigan, and Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff of Colorado.

"The 10 Under 40 Program is an ideal way to promote each of them and the ideas they are championing," said Frank Donatelli, chairman of the GOPAC Education Fund, one of the event's partners.

"Sen. Yoder and Reps. August, Leonard, and Navarro-Ratzlaff personify the brightest up-and-coming leaders in the conservative movement today," he added.

"We are delighted to be partnering with the American Conservative Union to ensure our country has a deep bench of prepared leaders dedicated to lowering taxes, limiting government and creating a marketplace for private sector job creation."
