Marco Rubio Skips CPAC: Is He Purposefully Shunning the Conservative Movement?
Last year Marco Rubio delivered the keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Headlining perhaps one of the most important centralized Conservative events in the country officially made Rubio a right wing superstar. In fact, his picture is prominently displayed on graphics promoting this year's CPAC shindig, and yet Rubio has announced that he'll be skipping the festivities. Taken with his decision not to join the Senate's Tea Party caucus, does this mean Rubio is now trying to publicly distance himself from certain fringes of the conservative movement?
Indeed instead of speaking at CPAC, scheduled between February 10th and 12th, Rubio will be making an appearance at the much more low key Pinellas County Lincoln Day Dinner.
