DALLAS, Texas (KETK) – CPAC Texas 2022 is underway in Dallas this weekend. The Conservative Political Action Conference is the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives.

CPAC was launched in 1794 and brings together hundreds of conservative organizations, thousands of activists and millions of viewers. This year’s speakers include Donald J. Trump, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Governor Greg Abbott, and Steve Bannon to name just a few.
