The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) takes place Thursday, March 6 through Saturday, March 8 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in beautiful National Harbor just outside of Washington, D.C.
CPAC is expected to draw at least 10, 000 conservatives from across the country. For conservative voters and activists, CPAC is an opportunity to hear and meet conservative politicians, leaders and intellectuals, all of whom share basic values of limited government, lower taxes, less regulations, free markets, individual liberty and family, among others. For politicians, on the other hand, CPAC is a unique opportunity to speak and connect with grassroots activists.
The event will feature a slate of potential 2016 presidential candidates, including Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio and Governors Bobby Jindal and Chris Christie. The New Jersey governor was denied a speaking slot last year following his “bromance” with President Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
Tomorrow promises to be an action packed day. Ted Cruz will get things rolling with his speech at 9:00. He will have a bloggers briefing in the afternoon. After that, I will be taking part in a conference call with Reps Chairman Issa and and Cathy McMorris Rodgers on Obama’s imperial presidency and executive overreach.
If you have any suggestions for me on what I might ask Chairman Issa on that conference call, let me know in the comments.
