MEDIA ADVISORY: Santorum to CPAC: "The Storm Has Gathered - America's Time To Respond"

VERONA, PA - Former Republican presidential candidate, U.S. Senator, and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum will deliver a speech entitled "The Storm Has Gathered - America's Time To Respond" to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this Friday, February 27th at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, MD.

In July 2006, Senator Santorum delivered a speech at the National Press Club, entitled "The Gathering Storm," that focused on the rise of Radical Islam and the threat it posed to America and her allies.  And in his farewell speech to the U.S. Senate on December 7, 2006 - the 75th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor - Senator Santorum again warned his colleagues to address and defeat this enemy.  In the nearly 9 years since Senator Santorum first warned of this threat, Radical Islam has expanded throughout the Middle East and the World, while both the Bush and Obama Administrations have done virtually nothing.  This Friday's speech will lay out a clear vision for identifying, combatting, and defeating Radical Islam. 

Senator Santorum served on the Senate Armed Services Committee for 8 years, where he led the efforts responsible for transitioning our military from a Cold War fighting force to one prepared to fight the asymmetric threats we see today.  Santorum was also the author of two major pieces of legislation imposing sanctions on the rogue regimes of Iran and Syria - both of which were initially opposed by then-Senator Biden and President Bush, but were both passed overwhelmingly and signed into law.  After leaving the U.S. Senate, Santorum founded a program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center focused on drawing attention to the Radical Islamist threat we continue to see today.

In addition to Friday's speech, Senator Santorum will be holding the following public, open-press events, including a public town hall meeting Friday afternoon. 

Friday, February 27:

12:20pm ET:     Senator Santorum will address the CPAC Morning Session.  The Senator's speech, entitled "The Storm Has Gathered: America's Time To Respond," will be a rebuttal of President Obama's failed foreign policies and the need to combat the Radical Islamist threat to America and her allies.  This speech is a continuation of Senator Santorum's focus on combating Radical Islam, an issue he first addressed in a 2006 speech at the National Press Club entitled "The Gathering Storm of the 21st Century."
