Posted on 02/11/2012 11:48:15 AM PST by fight_truth_decay
C-SPAN continues its LIVE coverage of the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Saturday in Washington. The last of the 3-day conference wraps up today with speeches by Grover Norquist and Sarah Palin.
Also speaking today, Chairman of National Republican Senatorial Committee Sen. John Cornyn.
On Friday, the three top GOP candidates for the Republican nomination -- former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum -- addressed the conference. Rep. Ron Paul was invited to speak this year but instead stayed on the campaign trail.
More than 10,000 conservatives are in Washington DC

Ron Paul had a scheduling conflict probably with a Code Pink

Norquist? Spit, spit, spit...he has no business at CPAC.

Sarah Palin’s CPAC speech [Closing] hurts, helps Mitt Romney, conservative movement?
Sarah Palin joins CPAC with a speech in Washington Saturday. Will she help or hurt Mitt Romney, and change opinions about Rick Santorum?
What impact, if any, will she have on the conservative movement and Newt Gingrich’s falling poll numbers? In past Conservative Political Action Conference meetings, just the mention or http://www.topix.com/us-governors/sarah-palin/2012/02/sarah-palins-cpac-speech-hurts-helps-mitt-romney-conservative-movement
I think they hold the straw poll there before Sarah speaks.
What’s his delegate count?

Sarah Palin has arrived on site with a huge security detail. #CPAC

Sarah Palin walking thru the hotel has caused a massive scene. People are fighting to get near her as security clears the area.
Peter Hamby @PeterHambyCNN
Palin tells @jeffzeleny & me that Romney “really [needs to] start connecting more with conservatives.” If he’s nominee, she warns turnout could suffer
