As you likely heard, Rick Santorum announced last week that he is a candidate for President of the United States. Because of this exciting announcement, he has stepped down as Chairman of Patriot Voices. We are writing to let you know that Patriot Voices will continue to carry out our mission of fighting to restore the American dream for hardworking families.
Patriot Voices was founded in 2012, as a place for conservatives to come together and multiply their voices in the fight to protect faith, family, freedom and opportunity in this country. In the three short years since then, Patriot Voices has done so much to protect these values.
Specifically, we have organized an army of 150,000 activists, 6,500 leaders, and 400 chapters that we can activate to stand up for issues we believe are important to our country's future. One of our most significant accomplishments was stopping the UN Treaty on Disabilities that certainly would have been ratified without our involvement. We were also among the first to come out against Common Core standards, and we have been vocal about the dangers of Iran.
Patriot Voices has been a strong supporter of the Keystone XL Pipeline which would create thousands of new jobs in this country, and we have fought tirelessly for the unborn. Patriot Voices will continue this important work in the weeks and months ahead. With your continued help and support, together we can make a difference well into the future.
