Pro-DeSantis outlet The Floridian reports:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) appears to have decided not to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), The Floridian has learned. According to a source, Gov.
DeSantis was invited to attend and speak but appears to have a scheduling conflict with the event, which will be held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland March 1-4.
The list of confirmed speakers does not list Gov. DeSantis. However, much like President Donald Trump, who is slated to speak at CPAC, DeSantis walks to the beat of his own drum.
Read the full article. DeSantis spoke at the last two CPACs, which were held in Florida due to COVID protocols at the usual host hotel near DC. Virtually every declared and aspiring GOP presidential candidate speaks at CPAC, which concludes with a presidential straw poll.
He’s afraid of Trump and Trump supporters now. https://t.co/M2446y0ruO
