Marco Rubio to be teabagger confernece headliner

Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)

February 18-20, 2010 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC. The Marriott Wardman Park is located at 2660 Woodley Road, NW, Washington, DC 20008

Senate candidate and tea party movement star Marco Rubio (Fla.) will be the first of many featured speakers in the main ballroom at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park.

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas), chairman of FreedomWorks — a major financial engine of the tea party movement — will also address the meeting on Thursday.

Even though the 2010 event falls during a recess week when Members are traditionally out of town, several Members of Congress are scheduled to attend the conference.

Republican House Members slated to give keynote addresses or lead seminars throughout the event include Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio); Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (Ind.); Minority Whip Eric Cantor (Va.); Policy Committee Chairman Thaddeus McCotter (Mich.); Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (Ga.); and Reps. Darrell Issa (Calif.), Jason Chaffetz (Utah), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) and former presidential candidate Ron Paul (Texas).

Only two members of the Senate — Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.) and David Vitter (La.) — are expected at CPAC, according to a copy of the event schedule.
