Students at Hillsdale College invited GOP hopefuls Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul to speak at the college about the Constitution in a nationally broadcasted symposium.

“This administration is doing everything wrong, making it more difficult to remain the political superpower in the world,” Jordan said, and his remedy is for conservatives to take big risks.
Occupy DC came to protest CPAC on Friday afternoon, fully equipped with banners and a large yellow “fat cat” balloon.
