The annual Conservative Political Action Conference, known as CPAC, takes place this week in Washington, DC. The conference serves as a gathering point for conservatives and typically as a spring board for Republican candidates wishing to spread their policy ideas and launch a presidential campaign. This year, leading up to 2016, will feature several key Republicans who may soon become official candidates.

The full CPAC schedule is available here but I’ve listed the candidate times below if you care to catch any of them on the live stream.

All times eastern and subject to change. Each candidate is given 20 minutes.

The live stream will be available from C-SPAN and we’ll have a wrap-up with many of the candidate videos on Saturday once the conference concludes.


  1. Is it really true that Walker and Trump are only allowed 20 minutes?
    It takes that long for windbag–the Donald–to introduce himself.
    Minimizing his time protects party interests, but why cut Walker so
    short?? Is it possible his time is really 4 pm?

    • Sorry. I just checked the full schedule. They all get 20 minutes. It just stood out for these two, since other candidates are scheduled immediately after them.

    • Yes, normally you can watch the entire event from start to finish on the live stream. I just listed the candidate times in case someone just wants to tune in and see someone specific.

      Much of it will also be on C-SPAN (or C-SPAN2 ?) throughout the day Thursday and Friday.

    • That’s gutsy, isn’t it? He’s already said he’d slam JEB on Common Core. If he smells blood in the water, it could be a repeat of the Ted Kennedy interview that ended his 1980 presidential campaign before it even began.
