Iowa 4th District Republican Congressman Steve King was a featured speaker this past weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.
King says Congress is too focused on economic issues and isn't addressing social issues like same-sex marriage.
King vowed to leave the event "like a rocket" to challenge the Republican Party to do more to promote traditional marriage and to "protect innocent, unborn life."
King also vowed to oppose the immigration reform efforts some of his Republican colleagues in congress are touting:
According to King, Mitt Romney used "kind and gentle language" when Romney suggested illegal immigrants should "self-deport" -- and King told the crowd that remark is not why Romney lost the election.
