Senator Rick Santorum Endorses Matt Schultz

Santorum

This morning Senator Rick Santorum announced his endorsement of Iowa Secretary of State                         Matt Schultz’s bid for Congress in Iowa’s 3rd                         Congressional District. This announcement comes on the                         heels of an announcement by FreedomWorks PAC that they                         too will be backing Schultz in the primary. The                         following comment can be attributed to Matt                         Schultz:

“It                         is an honor to have the support of my friend, Senator                         Rick Santorum. He is a principled leader and I am                         grateful for his                         support.”

Below                         are the comments released this morning from Senator                         Santorum:

VERONA,                         PA – 2012 Iowa Republican Presidential Caucus victor,                         2012 Republican presidential candidate, and Chairman of                         Patriot Voices Rick Santorum endorses Matt Schultz for                         Congress in Iowa’s 3rd congressional                         district.

“I                         first met Matt Schultz in early 2010 when I visited                         Council Bluffs, Iowa for a luncheon to support the                         Pottawattamie County Republican Party.  After                         lunch, Matt and I visited one-on-one, getting to know                         more about each other and talking about our mutually                         shared vision for our nation.  From that day                         forward, it was clear to me that Matt was a strong                         leader, great family man, and a leading face in a new                         generation of conservatives ready to return our nation                         to a path of prosperity.”

“The American                         people need courageous leaders in Congress to do the                         right thing for their constituents and the nation, and                         no candidate better epitomizes this brand of bold                         leadership more than Matt Schultz.  As Iowa’s                         Secretary of State, Matt has led the fight for voter                         integrity and insuring each vote counts.  I have no                         doubt that Matt will bring this same leadership to the                         Halls of Congress on issues like fiscal responsibility                         and job creation for working families.  My wife                         Karen and I are both proud to wholeheartedly endorse                         Matt’s candidacy.  I look forward to joining Matt                         on the campaign trail soon,” concluded                         Santorum.
