Mitt Romney said that his speech Friday at CPAC will prove that he’s 100 percent conservative, despite criticism from GOP rivals that he is too moderate.

"I have a record of being a strong conservative on the issues that matter, and I'll point that out to my friends at CPAC," Romney told CBS News.

He said that he is fighting the mandate for religious employers to provide contraceptives and is trying to block same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, reports The Daily Beast.

Romney met with conservative leaders Thursday where he held some $10,000 ticket policy discussions and a photo session and reception. He is expected to raise $1 million.

In 2008 Romney ended his candidacy for president at CPAC. This year, Romney will be addressing concerns about his presidential bid.
