Romney To Step Back Into Political Scene With Speech At CPAC

Romney Iowa Speech

After the election Mitt Romney has pretty much stayed off the radar. That will change when he delivers a speech at CPAC next month.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference next month, according to two sources familiar with the event’s itinerary. Romney’s speech, which will be delivered at the Gaylord National hotel in Prince George’s County, Md., marks the former Massachusetts governor’s return to the political scene.

After he lost the presidential election, Romney decamped to his beachfront home in La Jolla, Calif. But friends say he has become somewhat restless, and he’s eager to contribute to the national debate. Sources say he’ll likely focus on economic and fiscal issues, and that his message will be optimistic.

A former Romney said he will use the occasion to thank his supporters.

It doesn’t say what day Romney will speak, but there’s an opening in the schedule on Friday at 1:00 PM
