Patriot Voices was founded by Rick and Karen Santorum in 2012 to give a voice to hard working Americans. Our mission is clear: we must fight to protect faith, freedom, family and opportunity. The fight for these bedrock principles is just as important today as it was when our country was first founded. Learn more about the people behind Patriot Voices:
