The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is the annual gathering of the modern movement within the Republican Party. While the conference was formed in 1974, in recent years it has transformed alongside its party to become a breeding ground for the MAGA movement. Donald Trump continues to hold a tight grip on the GOP and every guest in attendance this year is quite happy about it. From Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, all of them spoke in the echo chamber of the modern Trump view of the world. The main goal of the weekend for many of the speakers was not just rallying the movement of Republicans before November but making a grab for the still open spot as Trump’s running mate. Whether you like it or not, he’s here to stay and isn’t letting go of the Republican Party anytime soon.
