Talk radio host and CNN contributor Dana Loesch said at CPAC today that the event’s organizers should have allowed the gay Republican group GOProud to sponsor the event.
“I like the guys in GOProud,” she told TheBlaze. “I’m one of those people that if we can find 80 percent of things we can agree on it, then let’s do that. And after we accomplish those things, we’ll fight like hell over the 20 percent.”
Some conservatives have spoken out against CPAC for preventing GOProud, for the second year, from sponsoring the event. GOProud sponsored CPAC twice before in 2010 and 2011. TheBlaze TV’s S.E. Cupp was invited to speak at CPAC but chose to boycott the event after GOProud wasn’t allowed to sponsor.
Loesch added, however… that “it’s a free country” and CPAC organizers “are going to run it how they want.”
“More voices, not less, that’s the key. And I hope people remember that going forward,” she said.
CPAC has also been criticized by high profile Republicans like Newt Gingrich for not featuring New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) as a speaker.
