Former President Donald Trump speaks at CPAC in Dallas

Former President Donald Trump returns to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas to deliver the commencement address.

Trump is expected to begin speaking at 6:30 p.m. Eastern / 5:30 p.m. Central.

Trump’s speech comes after a successful Tuesday night where an overwhelming majority of candidates he endorsed won their primaries in Arizona, Michigan and Missouri.

It even looks like Trump will pick up another victory as congressional candidate Joe Kent is expected to pass Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), who voted to impeach Trump, in the jungle primary race for Washington’s third congressional district.

On Wednesday, Trump had a 172-10 record in approval for the federal and statewide primary races leading up to the 2022 midterm cycle.

Although the former president has not officially announced his candidacy for the presidency in the 2024 race, he has repeatedly hinted that he may do so.

If Trump decides to run, he appears to have the overwhelming support of Republican voters, as a recent Harvard-Harris poll shows Trump leading all other major potential opponents with a 52% majority.

The former president spoke yesterday in Waukesha, Wis., in support of gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels.

The CPAC 2022 Texas conference runs from August 4-7.

The conference features many prominent GOP politicians and conservative figures, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Texas Governor Greg Abbot (R) , Republican candidate for Arizona Governor Kari Lake, TV host Sean Hannity, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R), Nigel Farage and many more.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban also delivered a speech at Thursday’s conference.
