Bloomberg is the first presidential candidate confirmed to speak at the annual conference, which will be held from March 1-3 in Washington, DC, with the final day falling on Super Tuesday, when 14 states will hold presidential primaries.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary; Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.); and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have already announced that they will not attend the annual conference.

AIPAC has come down hard on Sanders for the decision, in addition to derogatory words he launched at AIPAC. The pro-Israel lobby has not publicly criticized Warren for her decision to miss the event.
