State Rep. Nick Zerwas (R-Elk River) is scheduled to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the Ronald Reagan Dinner during the annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on Friday, March 7. CPAC is organized by the American Conservative Union, a group celebrating its golden anniversary this year.
“I’m honored to be invited to participate in the marquee event for conservatives across the nation,” said Zerwas.
According to CPAC organizers, Zerwas was chosen to lead the Pledge because of his record as young conservative legislator and compelling personal story having undergone 10 open heart surgeries.
Zerwas plans to return home to Minnesota the following morning to attend his BPOU convention in Elk River where he will seek the Republican endorsement for a second term.
