Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, along with Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky, will be speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in early March.

"We are pleased to again welcome Gov. Sarah Palin to CPAC in March," Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said in a statement released to Breitbart News. "Gov. Palin electrified the crowd in 2013, and we are thrilled to welcome her back this year."

Along with Rubio and Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson will be taking the stage at CPAC's annual gathering of conservative activists hosted by ACU.

It will take place on March 6-8 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md., near Washington, D.C.

In 2013, the event drew more than 10,000 participants. It was also the year in which Christie was snubbed by the group.

CPAC is known as the conference where GOP presidential hopefuls make their pitch to the conservative wing of the party.
