(TheRedWire.com) – This week during the Club for Growth’s annual donor retreat many current and prospective Republican presidential hopefuls are going to be speaking during the event. Both Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley are set to attend the event.
Former Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, are also going to be attending the donor retreat. One notable absence from those who will be appearing in the retreat is former President Donald Trump who has already announced that he would try to win the GOP’s 2024 nomination.
Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), who has already disclosed that he will not be placing a bid on the White House is also set to speak during the event along with White House hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy, a wealthy entrepreneur and conservative activist who recently launched his campaign.
Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have also been invited to speak, but have declined due to being unable to attend the event. The only 2024 hopeful not in attendance during the retreat is going to be Donald Trump. The three-day event is going to take place from Thursday to Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla.
The retreat is happening at the same time as the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington. Many current and potential presidential hopefuls, including Trump, Haley, Pompeo, and Ramaswamy, are already scheduled to talk during the CPAC. While the retreat does not have a wide appeal that the CPAC has, it is still seen as an opportunity for presidential hopefuls to become more acquainted with donors.
