This morning more than 10,000 conservatives are expected at CPAC in Washington today, where guest speakers include Sen. Marco Rubio, Fmr. Rep. Michele Bachmann, Gov. Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Rep. Paul Ryan. In 2008, Mitt Romney bowed out to Sen. John McCain at CPAC, which was met with great regret by the audience.
Four years later, conservatives are divided and hardly rallying behind Romney. Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, told the panel on "Morning Joe" today that there is no better place to reach out to the GOP base. We'll talk to Tony Perkins at CPAC, and discuss much more 2012 with today's panel.
