Breitbart's Ben Shapiro Replaces Karl Rove as CA GOP Convention Keynote
Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro will give a keynote address at the California Republican Party convention this March, taking the spot previously scheduled for Karl Rove.
According to the Sacramento Bee, "Rove's talk has been moved to the Saturday luncheon because of a scheduling conflict," and the CA Republican Party "had been seeking to book a speaker who would appeal to conservatives in light of a rift caused by Rove's newly announced Conservative Victory Project."
Conservatives and Tea Partiers have claimed Rove's super PAC was created to go to war against them in Republican primaries.
Shapiro, the author of Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans, has been lauded in recent months for getting the better of mainstream media personalities like CNN's Piers Morgan in debates about gun control and the Second Amendment.
