Marion Maréchal-Le Pen’s will focus on calling for a “conservatism on both shores” in her scheduled remarks at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, according to the right-leaning French newspaper L’Incorrect.
The addition of Le Pen to this year’s conference has sparked controversy, with some conservatives wondering if the annual meeting of conservative activists and media organizations has been fundamentally corrupted.
“Her appetite for ideas has not left her, apparently,” L’Incorrect said.
She is slated to speak Thursday, Feb. 22 at 11:30.
Some conservatives, like The Daily Caller’s Scott Greer, defended her upcoming appearance.
“Marion is much more pro-free market than her aunt Marine and represents the traditional conservative faction of the National Front, which opposes the heterodoxy of the party’s leaders. Marion is also a devout Catholic who strongly opposes abortion and wants faith to play a greater role in French public life, much like social conservatives in America,” Greer wrote in a column Tuesday.
