The Xavier University College Republicans (XUCR) joined other conservatives from throughout the country in Washington D.C. for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

The CPAC was held at the Marriot Hotel Wardman Park and is a project of the American Conservative Union.

The event is co-hosted by, Young America's Foundation and Human Events.

Political conservatives came together to attend sessions about the upcoming elections and timely national topics.

Presenters such as Speaker of the House John Boehner, Rep. Michele Bachmann, former presidential

candidate Herman Cain, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Mass. Governor Mitt Romney spoke at sessions.

"CPAC is the emanation of conservative ideas and principles in a condensed time frame," Mike Hills, the vice chairman of XUCR, said. "The conference features speakers new and old, in fields ranging from the National Rifle Association (NRA) to Mitt Romney's candidacy for president of the United States."

Topics such as foreign policy, health care and education were addressed

throughout the three-day conference that allowed Xavier students an opportunity to hear America's top conservative leaders

and campaigners.

"Even more exciting, the conference

was in Washington, D.C., and the Xavier College Republican trip to D.C. provided Xavier students

with the opportunity to join with conservative activists from around the country at the very seat of power for our nation," Hills said.
