Eleven members of Kent State’s College Republicans are leaving Wednesday night for the Conservative Political Action Committee in Washington, D.C. The committee will consist of several speakers and workshops.

“It’s kind of called ‘Conservative Spring Break,’” said Eric Allen, vice president of Kent State’s College Republicans.

He has attended the committee before.

Speakers at the committee include Radio America’s Jim Roberts, Americans for Tax Reform’s Ryan Ellis, Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuño. The closing keynote speaker is talk-radio host Glenn Beck.

“I love it. It’s the highlight of my semester by far,” Allen said.

The committee will last from Thursday to Saturday.
