No CPAC Invite for Christie Because of ‘Limited Future’ in Republican Party


New Jersey governor Chris Christie was not invited to address the Conservative Political Action Conference because of his position on gun control, according to a source familiar with CPAC’s internal deliberations who requested anonymity to speak freely.

Christie has a “limited future” in the national Republican party given his position on gun control, the source tells National Review Online. As a result, the CPAC insider says, the focus of this year’s conference, “the future of conservatism,” made Christie a bad fit.

Christie, the source adds, is simply not a conservative in the eyes of organizers.


  1. Someone commented he would be a perfect fit -running as a democrat.

  2. How about the limited future of the Republican Party itself? Seems to me like the New England RINOstablishment is working hard to go the way of the Whigs....
