  • Much of the media claims the Conservative Political Action Conference and Chairman Matt Schlapp are a little too pro-Trump, leading some marquee Republicans to skip the annual event because of its focus on former President Donald Trump.
  • But Schlapp and some attending the conference said they can’t ignore that Trump leads in 2024 surveys and that even media polls show him supported by a sizable majority of the GOP.
  • “I think Trump is the odds-on favorite,” Schlapp told Secrets while not discounting the chance other candidates could catch fire. “These other guys are going to give it a shot, and we’ll see where we go.”
