Limbaugh to Speak in Closing Slot at CPAC

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh will be the closing speaker at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference in late February, the organization announced via Twitter this afternoon.

The conference's website has little detail about other speakers, indicating they will be announced later this month.

But Lisa de Pasquale, who operates the CPACnews Twitter account, also posted that Mitt Romney will speak on Friday, Feb. 27, the second day of the conference. Romney used his speech at CPAC last year to announce his withdrawal from the 2008 presidential campaign.

De Pasquale also used Twitter to announce that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter will be speaking at CPAC.
