Mitt Romney is returning to Washington to speak at the Conservative Political Action conference again next mont. After a hiatus from the public eye, Romney has returned to Washington only twice since his defeat; once for lunch with Obama and another time for a luncheon in his honor with campaign donors and fundraisers.
In a statement Romney said, “I look forward to saying thank you to the many friends and supporters who were instrumental in helping my campaign.”
An advisor to Romney told ABC News the speech is “an opportunity for him to express his appreciation to supporters and friends.”
American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas said “the thousands gathered at CPAC this year are eager to hear” from Romney.
“We look forward to hearing Governor Romney’s comments on the current state of affairs in America and the world, and his perspective on the future of the conservative movement,” Cardenas said in a statement.
The gathering of conservative activists will be held in mid-March at the Gaylord National hotel in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
