Mitt Romney to Speak at CPAC

Robert Costa at “National Review” reports:

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference next month, according to two sources familiar with the event’s itinerary. Romney’s speech, which will be delivered at the Gaylord National hotel in Prince George’s County, Md., marks the former Massachusetts governor’s return to the political scene.

After he lost the presidential election, Romney decamped to his beachfront home in La Jolla, Calif. But friends say he has become somewhat restless, and he’s eager to contribute to the national debate. Sources say he’ll likely focus on economic and fiscal issues, and that his message will be optimistic.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported that Governor Sarah Palin will also speak at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), that meets in Washington DC next month between the 14th and 16th.
