Join Tulare Kings Right To Life for the 19th annual Making A Difference for Life Fundraising Banquet! Thursday September 4th at the Visalia Convention Center with special guest Sen. Rick Santorum!
Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum was elected to the House of Representatives in 1990 at the age of 32, and served in the Senate from 1995 to 2007.
Sen. Santorum became one of the most successful government reformers in our
history, taking on Washington’s powerful special interests from the moment he arrived in our nation’s Capitol. He was an author of the landmark Welfare Reform Act, passed in 1996, that has empowered millions to leave the welfare rolls and enter the workforce. Mr. Santorum fought to maintain fiscal sanity in Washington before it was in fashion, fighting for a balanced budget and a line item veto. Santorum is also a national leader on pro-life issues, with a clear record of defending the dignity of every human life.
Sen. Santorum has written three books: It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good; American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom; and Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting to an America That Works. Rick and his wife, Karen, are the parents of 7 living children and one who is in heaven.
