Rubio is slated to speak at 10 a.m. Thursday at the annual Who’s Who national gathering of conservatives. He’s also expected to attend a few fund-raising events while he’s in town, including one with GOP stars Mary Matalin and Liz Cheney and former U.S. Reps. J.C. Watts and Vin Weber.CPAC Director Lisa DePasquale said Rubio was invited to speak because of interest from CPAC sponsors.
What about Crist?
“Charlie Crist’s name did not come up” when speakers were being considered for the conservative confab, DePasquale said.
