The 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference, which brings together hundreds of conservative politicians, media people, organizers and activists each year, kicked off Thursday in Washington and will run until Saturday.
This year’s CPAC theme is "America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives. New Challenges, Timeless Principles." The event features some of the biggest names -- young and old -- in the conservative wing of the Republican Party. Among the featured speakers are Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., newcomer Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., and real estate mogul Donald Trump.
In his speech on Friday, Trump said for Republicans, immigration reform is a "suicide mission" because the votes of the 11 million illegal immigrants will go to the Democrats.
Here’s a schedule of the events and speaking times.
