CPAC: The Rev. Cruz Preaches It

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland Ted Cruz was on stage in the Potomac Ballroom when I turned to Dave Weigel and said, “He can really preach it, eh?” Weigel said, “Well, that’s what his father did.” Indeed, the Texas senator’s father, Rafael Cruz, is an evangelical pastor, and the son’s sermon was the straight-up Tea Party gospel […]

Best. CPAC. Ever.

Every year, the question is, “How can this CPAC possibly better than last year’s?” I’m not sure, but every year they try: As soon as attendees at the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) check into their hotel rooms, they will see evidence that the 2016 presidential campaign has already begun.
