Yahoo News saw Wednesday what Midwest conservatives will see tomorrow -the link between Wisconsin's win for conservatives and Friday's conservative gathering in Rosemont -
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory Tuesday in the state's recall election arrived at an opportune time for Midwestern Republicans, who on Friday will meet 125 miles southeast of the Wisconsin capital for a day-long gathering of more than 2,000 conservative activists.
The theme of the gathering is "Take Back the Midwest," and Walker's success undoubtedly will offer significant encouragement for attendees who view the area as an important battleground for Republicans in November.
"I think it will undoubtedly add a dash of passion," ACU Chairman Al Cardenas told Yahoo News, referring to the Republican victory. "Remember this is the Midwest, where conservatives felt that they've lost more than they've won over the past couple of decades, so it's an infusion of hope and optimism without a doubt."
CPAC Chicago is being hosted by the American Conservative Union in partnership with URF Right Nation and The Heartland Institute.
