Washington, DC (February 16, 2010) –The Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the leading poker grassroots advocacy group with more than one million members nationwide, will be a booth-sponsor at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this Thursday through Saturday in Washington, D.C. This will be the second year PPA has attended CPAC and used the conference as an opportunity to increase its advocacy with conservative audiences and make the case for supporting poker player’s rights.
Greg “Fossilman” Raymer, the 2004 World Series of Poker champion, will participate in an autograph signing session for attendees on Thursday and conduct interviews with conservative bloggers and talk radio hosts. An opinion column authored by Greg Raymer was recently published on The Daily Caller, an emerging source for news and politics.
“Americans enjoy the game of poker no matter their political stripes,” Raymer said. “We need to make sure that both politicians and activists are aware of the ridiculous attempts to prohibit online poker and empower them with the information and the tools necessary to stand up for our freedoms to play.”
Additionally, PPA has launched a CPAC site that includes conservative commentary, news reports, and talking points relating to protecting poker for both CPAC attendees and conservatives across the country.
