CPAC announces 2022 agenda, speakers
Organizers of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) have announced the full agenda and slate of speakers for this year’s event, which will give several potential 2024 GOP presidential hopefuls face time with party activists.
Former President Trump, who has delivered a keynote address at the event several times in recent years, will again headline the conference with a speech on Saturday.
Breakout speeches and sessions will start Friday and run through Sunday.
Several other Republicans floated as potential future presidential candidates are slated to make appearances, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R).
Others slated to be part of the event include Donald Trump Jr., South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R), former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) and Papa John’s founder John Schnatter.
Former Vice President Mike Pence and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who have also been floated as possible 2024 contenders, are not scheduled to speak at the event.
The event in Orlando, Fla., is expected to draw a number of congressional Republicans, conservative media figures and leading activists on the right. A full agenda can be seen here.
