Despite a year of pressure from top Republican leaders saying it's politically necessary for the party to pass an immigration bill, rank-and-file conservatives at CPAC are unconvinced, saying they want their party focus to be on border security rather than working with Democrats to legalize illegal immigrants.
With leading conservatives gathered just outside Washington this week, Democrats have a launched an all-out public-relations offensive aimed at convincing moderate voters that the GOP is now run by "fringe" elements on the far right.
Gov. Chris Christie fired up the crowd at CPAC Thursday with his call for Republicans to present a positive agenda, while Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio laid out the outlines of what that kind of agenda could look like — and Rep. Paul Ryan sounded like a man who's seriously thinking about running for the White House.

It is a rare occurrence, but some authentic polling numbers reveal that Republican voters miss Mitt Romney, even as he earns some newfound public appreciation for his canny prediction that Russia could prove a viable threat to the U.S.
Sen. Marco Rubio flexed his political and diplomatic muscles this weekend, wading into the Arizona debate that pitted gay rights versus religious freedoms to issue a rather wishy-washy summary: We've got to do something.
Western powers on Sunday prepared a tough response to Russia's military advance into Ukraine and warned that Moscow could face economic penalties, diplomatic isolation and bolstered allied defenses in Europe unless it retreats.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Florida Gov. Rick Scott told a crowd of Venezuelans in Miami on Friday they are urging the U.S. government to instate sanctions against the South American country where nationwide protests against President Nicolas Maduro have turned deadly.
Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican and member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said a bipartisan coalition of senators appears poised to move forward with legislation that would tighten sanctions if Iran fails to live up to its end of the six-month agreement it struck last week with the so-called P5+1 group of nations — the U.S., the U.K., Russia, China, France and Germany.
"Diplomacy, foreign assistance and military intervention are tools at our disposal," he said. "But foreign policy cannot be simply about tactics. It must be strategic, with a clear set of goals that guide us in deciding how to apply our influence."
