Christie Apparently Snubbed By CPAC Organizers
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who angered some fellow Republicans with his public praise of President Obama’s handling of Superstorm Sandy just days before the November election, appears to have been snubbed by this year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) gathering.
Despite being chosen to deliver the keynote speech at last year’s Republican National Convention, CPAC officials chose not to invite the popular governor to this year’s three day event, which starts on March 14 near Washington, D.C., according to NBC News.
Meanwhile, the American Conservative Union, which sponsors the event, announced on Monday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be among the featured speakers at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
“Governor Rick Perry has been successful in leading Texas with strong fiscally conservative policies,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Governor Perry back to the CPAC stage in March.”
