Snubbed at CPAC

Politico notes that neither New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) or Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) was invited to speak at CPAC this week, "one of the premier showcase events for national Republicans. The snub of Christie was more heavily covered --perceived as punishment for his post-Hurricane Sandy embrace of Obama -- but both governors have run afoul of CPAC organizers in related ways."

"Officials with the American Conservative Union, which hosts CPAC, caution not to draw any dramatic conclusions from the fact that Christie and McDonnell didn't make the cut this year... But in an age when conservative advocacy groups, right-leaning media and a white-hot Republican base tend to reward the most confrontational and theatrical politicians, neither Christie nor McDonnell appears to be in the GOP sweet spot anymore."
