Washington, D.C. – Today, former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania and a former Presidential candidate Rick Santorum addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservative activists at CPAC 2014 – a celebration of 50 years of the ACU and America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists.

Santorum offered the following words, "I'm here to see America win...We are the party who has the polices that will work best. We are the party that will create growth and opportunity.

He declared, "The first economy is the home. When the home breaks down the economy breaks down!"

Santorum continued, "I think we need to talk a lesson from someone who is, maybe, the most popular person in the world right now, Pope Francis...he's going out there what the Christian faith is against, but what we're for for. He'll go out there and talk about the good news to a hurting world...What we need to do is talk about the good ideas we have."

He ended, "Let's talk about how we can build a great America again."
