CPAC 2019 begins Wednesday
From local activists to the President of the United States.
Conservatives from all over the country are on their way to the Washington, D.C-area for the Conservative Political Action Conference, which begins Wednesday.
Eight sitting Republican senators will speak this year. That includes Wyoming’s John Barrasso, Iowa’s Joni Ernst, and South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham.
Organizers are expecting this CPAC to draw the biggest audience ever.
Tuesday, organizers also announced President Donald Trump will speak for the second straight year. This time he will be coming to CPAC after completing an overseas trip.
Dan Schnieder, CPAC's executive director, said, “It’s going to be really interesting to see what he has to say because he will have just negotiated with the North Koreans and at the same time negotiated with the Chinese on a big trade deal. So, there’s going to be a lot of news to cover.”
A few names from the sports world will also speak, including New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis. Davis will talk about criminal justice reform.
CPAC runs Wednesday through Saturday.
