Mitt Romney To Give His First Big Speech After His Failed 2012 Run For President: The Former GOP Nominee Will Address CPAC Next Month [VIDEO]

Mitt Romney will give his first big speech since being defeated by President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, next month at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Back in February, when the presidential campaign was in full swing, it was CPAC where Romney attempted to assure his Republican base that the former Massachusetts governor wasn't secretly a New England liberal.

"As governor of Massachusetts I had the unique experience of defending conservative principles in the most liberal state in the nation." Romney told the 2012 crowd at CPAC.

After a few people clapped, Mitt quipped: "There are three people here from Massachusetts, I appreciate that."

Later, Romney added, "I know conservatism because I have lived conservatism,"

The Romneys skipped President Obama's inauguration in January and have kept a relatively low profile at their La Jolla, Calif. residence, since the election.

Yet Mitt and Ann did turn up in Washington, D.C. that same week for a reception held in their honor.

"We lost, but I'm not going away," Romney told the reception attendees, according to Politico. "I will continue to help."

American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas is thrilled at the planned Romney speech.

"The thousands gathered at CPAC this year are eager to hear from the former 2012 GOP presidential candidate at his first public appearance since the elections," Cardenas told The Washington Post in a statement. "We look forward to hearing Governor Romney's comments on the current state of affairs in America and the world, and his perspective on the future of the conservative movement."

According to Yahoo News, no date has been set for Romney's speech.

The 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference runs from March 14-16 at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Md.

Other planned speakers include former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
