WATCH: Arizona State Rep. Steve Montenegro Speaks Today At Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference In Washington

Arizona State Rep. Steve Montenegro (R-LD13, Avondale) spoke today at the well-covered  Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference in Washington, D.C.  While not getting the same level of enthusiasm as some of the big name speakers (such as Sarah Palin, Sens. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio), Montenegro received a warm welcome as he spoke about his conservative activities in the Arizona Legislature.

He focused on immigration and border security issues, but Montenegro's biggest applause came when he contrasted it to another hot-button issue.  He said he refuses to be lectured by Democrats about "compassion" in the immigration reform debate "when they sat by and let 50 million babies be aborted."

(Montenegro is also District Representative for Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD8), who was a surprise speaker to the F&FC attendees last night.  Arizona's Politics has not yet found video for that speech.)
