Interesting that Donald Trump would cancel a speaking gig at the Conservative Political Action Conference at the last minute. The Trumpster was scheduled to speak at the conference on Saturday at 8:30am.
I'm guessing he's feeling pretty confident about his candidacy that he can blow off the CPAC folks.
Or, maybe he's feeling a bit burned from his disastrous showing at the Republican debate last night?
Perhaps it wasn't a big enough crowd for him?
Here's the announcement the Trump campaign sent to CPAC:
The Donald J. Trump for President Campaign has just announced it will be in Witchita, Kanasas for a major rally on Saturday prior to Caucus. He will also be speaking at the Kansas Caucus and then departing for Orlando, Florida and a crowd of approximately 20,000 people or more. Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC as he has done for many consecutive years. Mr. Trump would like to thank Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States.
The CPAC peeps were not thrilled:
Very disappointed @realDonaldTrump has decided at the last minute to drop out of #CPAC -- his choice sends a clear message to conservatives.— CPAC (@CPAC) March 4, 2016
