Former President Donald Trump returns to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas to deliver the keynote address.
Trump is scheduled to begin speaking at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time / 5:30 p.m. Central Time.
Trump’s speech comes after a successful Tuesday night where an overwhelming majority of the candidates he supported won their primary in Arizona, Michigan and Missouri.
It even looks like Trump will pick up another win when congressional candidate Joe Kent is projected to be Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), who voted to impeach Trump, to pass in Washington’s third congressional district jungle primary race.
As of Wednesday, Trump has a record 172-10 in approval for federal and state-wide primary races leading into the 2022 midterm cycle.
While the former president has not formally announced his candidacy for president in the 2024 race, he has repeatedly hinted that he will.
If Trump decides to run, he appears to have overwhelming support from Republican voters, as a recent Harvard-Harris poll shows Trump leads all other potential primary opponents with a 52 percent majority.
The former president spoke yesterday in Waukesha, Wisconsin, in support of governor candidate Tim Michels.
The CPAC 2022 Texas conference will be held from August 4-7.
The conference features many prominent GOP politicians and conservative figures, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Texas Gov. Greg Abbot (R), Republican nominee for Kari Lake, Arizona governor, TV host Sean Hannity, former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin (R), Nigel Farage, and many others.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban also gave a speech at the conference on Thursday.
