Chris Christie will not be invited to CPAC

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has fallen out of favor with some conservatives in recent months, is not being invited to the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to someone close to CPAC who was not authorized to speak publicly.

The big conservative confab in the Washington area is a routine stopover for potential future potential GOP presidential candidates and has already nabbed most top 2016 contenders.

Officially, CPAC says its schedule is still a work in progress. Christie's potential snub has been the subject of some reports in recent days.

"CPAC schedule is still being finalized, with several more announcements pending over the next three weeks," said CPAC spokeswoman Laura Rigas.
