For months, relations between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have been cool. But things should warm up soon. According to Santorum insiders, the former Pennsylvania senator, who is slated to speak in Tampa, will bring together a large group of conservative leaders at a convention reception. The theme: movement unity. Santorum will urge the group to rally behind the nominee.
The event, which will be hosted by Santorum’s new grassroots group, Patriot Voices, will be held on Wednesday, August 29. Confirmed attendees include Foster Friess, James Dobson, Tony Perkins, Ralph Reed, Gary Bauer, Richard Viguerie, Dave Bossie, Morton Blackwell, Ed Atsinger, and Phyllis Schlafly, among others.
