“Throughout his time in office Senator Coburn has been a consistent champion of conservative principles.” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “Senator Coburn’s great contribution has been relentlessly fighting against government waste and protecting the taxpayers money through oversight. I am very pleased to welcome Senator Coburn back to the CPAC stage and look forward to his remarks in St. Louis.”
Tom Coburn, M.D., was first elected to the U.S. Senate on November 2, 2004.
