“I am proud to announce that Rick Santorum, winner of the 2012 Iowa Caucus, today, has endorsed my campaign for the U.S. Senate,” said Sam Clovis.  “His understanding of the Constitution and the freedoms that we enjoy has had a profound influence on what I have stressed in my campaign.  Our personal relationship and our shared values helped me decide to run for the U.S. Senate.”

Sam Clovis is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Tom Harkin.  Harkin announced that he would be retiring at the end of this Congressional session.

“I am proud to endorse my friend Sam Clovis for the United States Senate,” said Santorum.  “I had the pleasure of getting to know Sam during my run for president and was blessed by his support along the campaign trail.  I know what is in his heart, and Sam is a true full-spectrum conservative who believes in the greatness of America, American exceptionalism and the founding principles in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.”

“I am fond of Iowa and have gotten to know many Iowans through the years,” Santorum said.  He continued by saying that the one thing that all Iowans appreciate and expect from their politicians is the truth.  “And the truth is that Sam Clovis is a man of principle who will advance the cause of conservatism and will be an outstanding U.S Senator.”
