Ohio Governor John Kasich’s campaign claims he was not invited to the 2016 American Conservative Union’s “Conservative Political Action Conference,” otherwise known as “CPAC,” which is held in Maryland next month.
But ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp insists that it was Kasich who chose not to attend the annual conservative convention.
In a meeting with reporters at The Heritage Foundation headquarters in Washington on Thursday afternoon, Schlapp said:
“Unfortunately, John Kasich did not feel like CPAC should be on his agenda and he’s taking a pass.”
The Kasich campaign is telling a different story than Schlapp and the ACU.
