Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump Right To Skip CPAC ('the votes are in Kansas, not Washington')
Posted on 03/04/2016 4:43:05 PM PST by drewh
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Friday praised Donald Trump for his last-minute decision to skip the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). CPAC organizers announced Friday that the GOP presidential front-runner had dropped out of his commitment to speak at the conference on Saturday morning.
The real estate mogul's campaign issued a statement shortly after saying he would instead be campaigning in Kansas and Florida.
Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC as he has done for many consecutive years, the statement read. Mr. Trump would like to thank Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States. Trump has been heavily criticized by many Republicans, and some speakers at the gathering took the opportunity take shots at the front-runner.

CPAC is NEO CON RINO . Trump is winning because he works his ass off. He went to Kansas today ON HIS OWN MONEY to save this nation. You can’t even make up how he is willing to help this country while Mar Levin screamers go measure their hands. Go to hell CPAC!!Define “conservatism” and don’t include Globalist crap!!
What is Newt positioning himself for? Me thinks Newt wants something from Trump.
I like when Newt steps in. He’s an honest broker.
Newt is right again.
He has already said that he uses Newt as an advisor.
Let me advise you all again. Newt WILL BE OUR VICE PRESIDENT!! It is a perfect match!! No one will disagree with that match!! GO TRUMP. This is the Sherman march to the sea now!!
Secretary of State.
Where was CPAC at during the last 7 years? This is what I mean, about Trump’s support. The time for talking and giving speeches is over.
Nope...Newt will be his closest advisor. Walker will be VP.
He might be smart enough to use a Gov email account
Newt is right on target. The Cruz/Beck team had set up an ambush for Trump. He is much better off campaigning for votes than attending a CPAC meeting.
Newt isn’t positioning himself. He doesn’t have to. Trump calls him all the time on an advisory basis and has said so publically.
Newt would be an asset in governing, but probably a drag on the campaign trail, given the hostility from socons.
LOL, give me a break. 90% of the conservatives in the world are at CPAC. Just look at a portion of their stellar speaking list.
Oh, and, Trump lied about self-funding. He said today he’s taking donations if he wins the nomination, which means he can use those to pay back all the “loans” he gave to his campaign. What a conning skinflint he is.
CPAC is not conservative a anymore. Homosexuals, open borders, RINO’s and open borders, plus heathens are all going now.
To call it conservative is a joke
CPAC was a back flow diversion . I WANT A DEFINITION OF CONSERVATISM!! List each elemental requirement in numerical order. Do not start with “globalist intervention” or “Open fricken borders” I want to hear the elements in numerical order and don’t leave any thing out!. Let me tell you folks, Trump is more conservative ,in my book, than the following: Bush ( either) ,McCain, Romney, Dole,Boehner, MCconnell, Paul Rino,Karl; Rove, Haley Barbour, Kelly Ayotte, Linda Graham!! Any more
I think they DID NOTHING!! I think they are a bunch of “PROFESSIONAL conservatives” living on weak minded donations. Trump is a real Conservative — Not a globalist,open border, job killing,war mongering interventionist. That crap is not conservatism.!! YOU stole conservatism. We will now TAKE IT BACK NOW , thank you.
