The annual Conservative Political Action Conference wrapped up last weekend with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) winning the traditional straw poll with 25 percent of the vote.
And coming in a close second was U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) with 23 percent of the vote. Former Sen. Rick Santorum came in third, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not in attendance.
Although it is still early, the straw poll is considered a good early indicator of top contenders for the 2016 presidential election. Last year, it was Mitt Romney who came out on top in the straw poll, eventually going on to win the GOP nomination.
The conference, which took place at National Harbor near Washington D.C., from March 14 through 16, included many notable conservative speakers over the three days. The conference reported that 2,930 people voted in the CPAC straw poll.
Do you think a Paul/Rubio ticket would be the 2016 dream team for the GOP?
