Andy Dean, whose radio show American Now airs nationally on Premiere Radio Networks, believes social conservatism as promoted by Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee is dying.

Santorum and Huckabee are best known for opposing gay rights and reproductive rights.

Appearing on Larry King's new RT show Politicking, Dean argued that social conservatism was hurting the Republican Party.

Dean separated himself from “Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, guys who wear sweater vests” conservatives.

“That whole world is dying. It's supposed to die,” Dean told King.

“New conservatives are people who like low taxes, less government intrusion, strong national security and your choice when it comes to health care. Those are issues that we can win on as an inclusive party.”

“If you push the abortion issue, you'll never get the female vote. And without women you can't win, you can't do anything.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
