Open Thread: GOP Candidates at Florida CPAC

Following yesterday's debate and anticipating tomorrow's straw poll, the GOP presidential candidates are assembled again today to speak to the crowds at Florida CPAC. Many are also anticipating other speakers, including commentators Ann Coulter, S.E. Cupp, and Bill Kristol, among others, speaking on grassroots activism, policy, and traditional conservative values.

After giving their speeches today and campaigning for straw poll votes tomorrow, it will be important to see which candidate is able to garner the most support from the large senior population in Florida. Other important things to consider are how Gov. Rick Perry's soft stance on immigration will affect him, how former Gov. Mitt Romney will play to a crowd with values traditionally more aligned to Perry, if Tea Party members are satisfied with the current crop of candidates, and how candidates will appeal to the large immigrant population in Florida.
