You can see the entire CPAC agenda here.
Here, we have listed the 10 most important speeches (and one event), for your viewing pleasure:
9 a.m.: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) — Perhaps the most anticipated speaker of CPAC starts things off.
11 a.m.: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) — After being snubbed last year, a Christie who is struggling with Bridgegate is suddenly persona grata (is that a phrase?).
Noon: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) — One of the biggest questions about this potential 2016 candidate is whether he can stir conservatives’ emotions. CPAC is a good test of that.
12:15 p.m.: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — The Florida senator is resurgent after losing some conservatives with his comprehensive immigration reform push. We’ll see how he’s received and whether he mentions/defends that effort, which many in the crowd surely oppose.
2:45 p.m.: Donald Trump — The Donald shouldn’t be considered a potential presidential candidate, really. But his nascent status as a conservative hero says plenty about the movement he will address Thursday.
9 a.m.: Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) — The outgoing governor has clear designs on avenging his disastrous 2012 presidential bid in 2016.
10:23 a.m.: Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) — He has also made little secret of his potential presidential run. He struggles with some fiscal conservatives, but he’s a favorite of social conservatives.
2:51 p.m.: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — The Fix’s 2016 GOP front-runner takes the stage to share his unique platform for the GOP.
1 p.m.: Ben Carson — The former Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon was one of the biggest CPAC stars last year, and alluded to a potential 2016 presidential bid. He’s had some stumbles since then, including comparing gay marriage to pedophilia. As a dark horse, though, he’s worth keeping tabs on.
5:30 p.m.: CPAC Straw Poll — This means less than many would like to think, but it’s still interesting stuff and the trademark ending of the annual conference. Past winners include Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
5:45 p.m.: Sarah Palin — The former GOP vice presidential candidate has been known to bring props — a Big Gulp, among them. She closes the 2014 conference this year.
