NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—The sponsors of this year's CPAC earn the right to see their names advertised in every large room or hallway: One America, a news network announced at last year's conference with a pledge to be a "platform," not an impediment, to conservatives; Tea Party Patriots, the venerable (five years old last month) coalition of activists that's only recently launched a PAC; and the film Persecuted, a fable about a Christian preacher who's ruined by the government as part of a war on religion.
The trailer plays at every other break in the main ballroom's action.
