Rick Santorum at Gettysburg

Mitt Romney is our nominee and I endorse him, personally. More on that later.

Rick Santorum came from nowhere with grit, determination, hard work, to speak for millions of Americans for whom the American dream includes economic opportunity, but it also includes basic human values: respect for life, for marriage, and for religious liberty. Rick spoke from and for the blue-collar wing of party, for an America that works for everyone. Money and organization matter, but they are not everything.

“What kept us going was your stories,” Rick said at Gettysburg.

 

No Republican underdog in living memory won ten states against the presumptive front-runner and nominee. Time will tell, but let me say what I think: It wasn’t an accident. We haven’t seen the last of Rick Santorum.

I do not know what Rick Santorum will do in the next few days, weeks, or months. But I know he will be in the fight, leading.

I trust Team Romney knows the value of having a guy like Rick fighting for your side.
