The Conservative Political Action Conference, CPAC, is holding a conference in Orlando, Florida Friday, September 23. Many Republican Presidential candidates and several state and national political and conservative leaders, including Marco Rubio will attend and speak. This presents an excellent opportunity to collect prolife personhood petitions.
