CPAC wants Coats to speak

Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., has been invited to speak Sept. 28 at the regional Conservative Political Action Conference in St. Louis.

The American Conservative Union said in a statement that its conference at the St. Charles Convention Center "will provide a day of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities -- all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values."

Coats is among 10 speakers the ACU invited in what it said is a third round of invitations. Gov. Mike Pence was among 14 invited earlier.

Others include Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire; GOP Govs. Sam Brownback of Kansas, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Rick Perry of Texas and Niki Haley of South Carolina; and National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre.
