“A crowd favorite at CPAC 2013, we are very excited that Jenny Beth Martin is returning to the CPAC stage in St. Louis,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Jenny Beth and the Tea Party Patriots have been a driving force in pushing leaders in Washington to return to the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market policies.”
