During one of the largest gatherings of conservatives before the 2016 Republican convention there was little mention of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, as conservatives grappled with the prospect of a Donald Trump nomination.
In past years, attendees denounced Clinton as organizers passed out opposition research aimed at implicated the former secretary of state in scandals. This year, few speakers mentioned Clinton or her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Instead the gathering of conservatives turned their attention to a more immediate threat to their party: Donald Trump.
When asked who they were more worried about in the Oval Office, Clinton or Trump, many conference attendees met the question with a blank stare.
