(Newser) – They may not get the headlines of Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, but here are some conservative "power players" to look for this year from Matt Lewis at Politics Daily.

  • Smart Girl Politics: "With a cool logo and an army of feisty, young conservative ladies," the website "is the place for conservative online women." The rapidly expanding network plans a big voter-registration push this year.
  • Andrew Breitbart: The Matt Drudge protege, who had a hand in the ACORN videos and the ouster of Obama aide Van Jones, has a new website coming out called Big Journalism.

  • Arthur Brooks: He's the smart, "hip" overseer of the American Enterprise Institute think tank, with a new book to be released on capitalism.
  • Leonard Leo: He's a VP at the Federalist Society. Expect him to loudly lead the charge against Obama's next Supreme Court pick.
  • Erick Erickson: The RedState editor will have a big impact on the GOP primaries, and don't be surprised if he lands his own cable show.
