WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The Washington Times is pleased to have joined the American Conservative Union in sponsoring and publishing the 2011 CPAC Straw Vote. We consider The Washington Times CPAC Straw Vote to be the benchmark poll of the political season, culminating in the 2012 presidential election.
Shortly after results are released at 5:30 pm EST, washingtontimes.com will carry an incisive analysis of the Washington Times/CPAC Straw Poll by the Times' venerable political columnist Ralph Hallow.
Just as the Times/CPAC poll signifies the inception of the political campaign season, it also symbolizes our commitment to expanding and extending our coverage of the political arena as 'America's Newspaper' enters its fourth decade of service to the American people.
While other media outlets are reducing journalists covering Washington, the Times is expanding staff to cover the important stories in the nation's capital in The Washington Times and Washington Times Weekly Edition; on the web at washingtontimes.com and on the country's fastest growing radio program America's Morning News each morning.
We commend ACU and its president, David Keene and incoming President, Al Cardenas, for once again launching America on the road to a pivotal political season. We are proud to be partners in this exciting and significant venture."
