Washington, D.C. – President and Co-Founder of the Tea Party Patriots, Jenny Beth Martin and Rep. Michele Bachmann addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservative activists Saturday morning at CPAC 2014 – a celebration of 50 years of the ACU and America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists.  

A clear and firm voice for conservatives, Martin rallied the crowd with her message on how conservatives can win.

“We want a country where personal freedom is cherished,” said Martin. “We will win! Our values, personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt free future will win.”

Introducing Rep. Michele Bachmann, she said, “Michele Bachman knows America needs the Tea Party.

“We will have a woman for president, just the right one. We are the only party to have a women on the presidential ticket this century,” Bachmann said in her opening remarks. “We have to keep our eyes on the prize, taking the gavel out of Harry Reid’s hands on the first Tuesday in November is going to feel pretty sweet…His reign is over!” 

“Our movement at its core is an intellectual movement,” Bachmann said.”The Constitution, limited government, free enterprise, strong families–these are the principles that have passed the test of time,” she declared.

Jenny Beth Martin is the President and Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots. In February of 2009 following a series of massive expansions of the United States government, Jenny Beth and several other concerned citizens formed the beginnings of the modern Tea Party movement. Making use of her already established social and blogging network, as well as an email list of contacts that she had built over years of political volunteer work, she contributed to the nascent Tea Party movement by reaching out to and mobilizing thousands of like-minded citizens.

In 2006, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann became the first Republican woman to be elected to represent Minnesota in the U.S. House of Representatives. As a self-proclaimed “Constitutional Conservative,” Bachmann is committed to fixing Washington’s broken ways by advocating for America’s adherence to the Constitution. Bachmann has become known on Capitol Hill as a member who champions tax reform, works to cut wasteful government spending and supports limiting the size of our government.
