Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be attending this year’s CPAC, the annual gathering of conservatives. This will be Mitt Romney’s first major appearance since the election, aside from various sightings and a meeting with the President. Aides are saying that the purpose of the speech will be to thank supporters.
CPAC has been an interesting place for former Governor Romney. He has won the presidential straw poll a few times, and has made interesting speeches. He announced the end of his 2008 run at the conference. Also, when he spoke at the 2012 conference, he said he was a “severely conservative” governor of Massachusetts. The soundbite ended up biting him during the general election when he attempted to appeal to moderates. The line also did fueled accusations that he was false.
