Chris Christie is no Conservative, why invite him to speak to Conservatives. He is a consummate Establishment Republican, and that is exactly the problem we have now. Too many Establishment Republicans that are more interested in getting re-elected than presenting Conservative Values.
If Chris Christie is the Republican nominee in 2016, I will be voting 3rd party. NO MORE WISHY WASHY REPUBLICANS!
As to GoProud... They were invited last evolution, and then soundly criticized Conservatives for not bowing to redefining marriage. Sorry, we don't abandon Conservative Values to pander to lobby groups. Welcome to the fold, but we are not creating special rights for special classes. That's a democrat thing.
