Today's CPAC 2015 agenda rolls out a lineup of GOP presidential hopefuls angling for conservative support in 2016. Thursday's company of speakers includes Ben Carson, Senator Mike Lee (UT), Governor Chris Christie (NJ), Senator Ted Cruz (TX), Governor Scott Walker (WI), Governor Bobby Jindal (LA), and Governor Sarah Palin.
The whispered question that can be heard throughout America's largest conservative convention is whether any of these potential candidates will reach out to the traditionalist audience with an authentic conservative message that will satisfy requirements rather than pay lip service to them.
In addition to the who's who of Republican politics that will be heard throughout the day at the convention, there will also be workshops and training seminars being offered by the American Conservative Union meant to educate and motivate the conservative base for the presidential election. There is a noteworthy emphasis on preparing Millennials as the next wave of conservatives, which can be seen as a good sign for the health and vitality of the conservative movement.
