ICYMI: National Journal Reports Senators Paul & Rubio 1st Confirmed CPAC Speakers

January 16, 2014

Washington, DC – In case you missed it, National Journal’s Beth Reinhard reported Senators Paul and Rubio are the first announced and confirmed CPAC speakers. CPAC will be held March 6-8 at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, DC. Visit CPAC.org for tickets and event information.

It’s That Time Again: Rubio, Paul to Headline CPAC

By Beth Reinhard, National Journal

Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky will be among the headliners at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, the conservative movement’s annual pep rally and popularity contest for the Republican party’s likely presidential contenders.

Too early to be talking about 2016? Not really. The Iowa caucus is roughly two years away, and if past cycles are any indication, candidates typically launch their campaigns more than six months before then. That means 2014 is the year when would-be candidates start securing big donors and building the groundwork in early-voting states.

“This presidential cycle for Republicans starts earlier than ever, in part because it’s the first time in a while we have an open seat without a leading candidate who has run before,” said Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which sponsors CPAC. “We’re almost off and running, and CPAC is the beginning of that journey.”

Last year’s CPAC gathering peaked at around 10,000 activists, and Cardenas said registration is running ahead for the March 6-8 convention at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland.
