Sarah Palin will speak at CPAC

← return to Water Cooler

They know an audience draw when they see it. Sarah Palin will speak at CPAC this year, offering proof that the former Alaska governor has yet to lose the affection of conservatives, no matter what the mainstream media says.

“We are pleased to again welcome Governor Sarah Palin to CPAC in March,” said American Conservative Union chairman Al Cardenas On Monday.

“Governor Palin electrified the crowd in 2012 and we are thrilled to welcome her back this year,” he added.

This is the 40th year for CPAC, the annual meeting of conservative minds, to be staged at a dramatic hotel setting on the banks of the Potomac River from March 14-16. The speakers roster for the event is fascinating and formidable.

Yes, it includes Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell, among several lawmakers. But also due on the dais: Allen West, Wayne LaPierre, Rick Santorum and Jeb Bush. It will be interesting to see if Dr. Ben Carson appears on the list in the very near future.
