The American Conservative Union (ACU) has scheduled a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for Oct. 4 in Denver, ACU officials told Politico.

The CPACs play a major role in galvanizing conservative support for Republican political candidates. The last regional conference was held in Chicago earlier this month, and the annual national event took place earlier this year in Washington, D.C. The ACU hopes the Denver CPAC will propel Republican candidates to victory in the Mountain West.

The speaker roster hasn’t been nailed down yet, but the ACU said it has invited many heavyweight Republicans from the West, including Govs. Jan Brewer of Arizona, Susana Martinez of New Mexico and Brian Sandoval of Nevada; Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Orrin Hatch of Utah and John Barrasso of Wyoming; and Reps. Denny Rehberg of Montana, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Raul Labrador of Idaho, Doug Lamborn of Colorado and Darrell Issa of California.

Presidential nominee-to-be Mitt Romney also has been asked to speak. The conference comes a day after the first general election presidential debate in Denver. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who served as keynote speaker for the Washington conference, received an invitation too.

And that group of invitees is “just the beginning,” an ACU official said.

“CPAC Colorado takes the fight for the future of America directly to a critical battleground state, the site of innumerable broken promises made to the American people in Denver the night President Obama accepted his party’s nomination in 2008,” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said in a statement.

Obama won Colorado in 2008, but a Public Policy Polling survey this week showed that his lead over Romney isn’t insurmountable – 49 percent to 42 percent.
