Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference, the American Conservative Union announced today. Townhall is partnering with the ACU to host CPAC 2013, which is being held March 14-16 in the Washington, DC area at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.

“The thousands gathered at CPAC this year are eager to hear from the 2012 GOP presidential candidate at his first public appearance since the elections,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to hearing Governor Romney’s comments on the current state of affairs in America and the world, and his perspective on the future of the conservative movement.”

“I look forward to saying thank you to the many friends and supporters who were instrumental in helping my campaign,” said former Governor Mitt Romney.

NRO’s Robert Costa first reported this information earlier today.
