Gingrich: Trump Right to Skip CPAC
According to Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump was right to skip the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Trump was right to skip CPAC. The votes are in Kansas not Washington. Why give the anti-trump activists a target

The Hill reports:
The real estate mogul’s campaign issued a statement shortly after saying he would instead be campaigning in Kansas and Florida.
“Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC as he has done for many consecutive years,” the statement read. “Mr. Trump would like to thank Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States.”
Trump has been heavily criticized by many Republicans, and some speakers at the gathering took the opportunity take shots at the front-runner.
