Power shut off at a conservative political conference in Dallas for about 10 minutes as Glenn Beck’s speech continued uninterrupted, it has been reported.
The main exhibition hall at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) went dark around 4.40pm local time Saturday and the outage lasted about 10 minutes, Fox News reported. The conference is being hosted at the Hilton Anatole hotel in Dallas.
The outage was isolated to the exhibition hall, which was cleared out, with the power remaining on in the rest of the hotel.

Fox News reporter Tyler Olson tweeted about the outage on Saturday
Beck, a conservative pundit, continued his speech on the conference’s main stage uninterrupted, Fox News reported.
The outlet reported that the outage ‘had to do with the Hilton Anatole’s HVAC system’.
Former President Donald Trump is expected to be in Dallas to speak at the conference on Sunday.
On Friday, his son Don Trump Jr took the stage and delivered a passionate speech.
The speech came amid reports that a conference attendee was handing out cards touting a ‘seven-point plan’ to return Trump to the presidency ‘within days’.
The so-called ‘Trump Cards’ outlining the improbable plan were first spotted by Forbes political reporter Andrew Solender, who said that an attendee at CPAC Dallas on Friday sent him a photo of the card.
In short, the plan calls for exposing the Democrats for monstrous crimes, electing Trump as House speaker, and impeaching and removing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
The plan includes a link to a website that elaborates on the proposal, describing the seven ‘dominoes’ that must fall to reinstall Trump in the White House. Each step seems unlikely, if not impossible.
Other notable speakers included South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Rick Scott, Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, and Former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
