Washington • Sen. Mike Lee will join fellow GOP leaders in speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside of Washington next month.

The three-day conference starting March 6 is one of the largest gatherings of conservatives in the country and will feature speeches from Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, as well as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

"Sen. Lee has been a voice of the people and a true leader in the tea party movement," said Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which organizes the conference.

Lee has spoken at the annual event three years running. The conference is held at Gaylord National Resort in Oxon Hill, Md.
