CPAC, a conference that holds a straw poll was won by Ron Paul in 2010 and 2011, but now even if Ron Paul does accept the invitation to CPAC; he would not have his own supporters and most likely would not win.
This will of course make the straw poll important, as it was in the past. This of course changed when the media said it didn't matter, because Ron Paul won.
The question is, Will this give a candidate a false jump start in the race?; as Ron Paul is discarded by the GOP Establishment and therefore will not win for the third time in a row.
This will take place on February 9-11 in Marriott Wardman Park, Washington D.C., you can also contact them now and complain

The reason why Ron Paul supporters are banned is for Booing at some of the Neo-con Speakers at the event in the past; even though Mitt Romney's supporters who Booed Ron Paul in 2010 are still invited.
