Who's missing from CPAC's preliminary schedule?

Organizers say this year's Conservative Political Action Conference will be the most diverse yet, but women will still hold less than a third of the speaking slots. Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who delivered the keynote address last year, will speak again. (AP)

Among the scheduled speakers for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this year are former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Sen. Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, all of whom ran for president in 2012.

Not on the list: the last actual Republican nominee for president, Mitt Romney.

Romney did address CPAC in 2013, several months after having lost the election to President Obama.

And though lately Romney has been on a sort of celebratory media tour, promoting a documentary about himself and even dispensing Olympics management advice in an op-ed, his name is nowhere on the latest CPAC schedule.

CPAC takes place in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., Mar. 6-8.

TheBlaze is a participating exhibitor at CPAC.
