Mitt Romney returns to CPAC

← return to Water Cooler

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference next month, marking Mr. Romney’s return to the public spotlight following three months of seclusion after his loss in the 2012 election.

“This is really an opportunity for Governor Romney to thank all his supporters and friends,” a senior Romney aide told the National Journal, which also reports that agreeable American Conservative Union chairman Al Cardenas says Mr. Romney will comment on “the current state of affairs in America and the world, and his perspective on the future of the conservative movement.”

The 40th annual CPAC is a biggie, to be staged in a hotel on the banks of the Potomac River, with a cast that includes Sarah Palin, many lawmakers, journalists and Republican thoughtleaders of every persuasion.
