OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Donald Trump's candidacy jumbled the conservative movement. But more than a year into his presidency, the onetime Democrat holds what seems to be a near-total grip.

The largest annual gathering of conservatives has all the looks of a Trump festival, with Republican critics shut out from the event outside the nation's capital.

Vice President Mike Pence has addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference, and he's offered a defense of the Trump agenda and tried to rally activists for the fall elections.

Pence tells the crowd: "Your president and I need you to show up." He's appealing them to "defend all that we've accomplished."
