Ryan, Rubio, Kemp And The Republican Future

By Steve Parkhurst

Last Night, Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Marco Rubio spoke on the future of the Republican party at the 2012 Jack Kemp Leadership Award Dinner.

It’s no secret I am an avid admirer of the late Jack Kemp, and the man who many have determined to be his protege, Congressman Paul Ryan. I’ve also become a fan of Marco Rubio. The irony is not lost on me that two men who want to bring all Americans into the fold (and both possibly have the best chance to do so) were the featured speakers and the two most recent winners of the Jack Kemp Leadership Award.

Rather than quoting speeches and singling out highlights, here are both speeches in their entirety.
