Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, along with Gov. Scott Walker, is facing an unprecedented recall election a little more than a year after taking office.
But Kleefisch is apparently unfazed by the prospect of being booted from office. She has agreed to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Chicago on June 8, just three days after she might be ousted by voters. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) is also speaking at the event. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) and Walker have also been invited to speak, but have not yet confirmed they will attend.
CPAC is picky about whom it lets participate in its conferences. It made headlines in February for "excommunicating" the conservative gay-rights group GOProud, while at the same time allowing Peter Brimelow, an accused white nationalist, to participate at its conference.
