Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be the closing speaker for the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. on February 11. In the past Glenn Beck, Allen West and Rush Limbaugh have closed out the major event.

“Few national conservative leaders in America today energize and inspire our grassroots activists like Governor Sarah Palin. Her strong record of leadership, championing of our shared principles and magnetic personality have made Sarah Palin a hero to millions of conservatives across the country,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “As we ready for the critical 2012 election, I’m honored to welcome Governor Palin to the Conservative Political Action Conference for the first-time ever.”

This is Palin's first CPAC appearance. Townhall.com is a lead sponsor for the event.
