Former U.S. Senator and 2012 Iowa Caucus Winner Rick Santorum has started to build his Iowa team.  This week he tapped State Representative Walt Rogers (R-Cedar Falls) as the chairman of Patriot Voices in Iowa.

“I am excited to announce the addition of Walt Rogers to our growing Iowa team and I am confident that his support today will again be a terrific lift for our efforts in the Hawkeye State.  Like me, Walt understands the importance of not just being a Party of business-owners, but being a Party that fights for the worker and hard-working families,” Santorum said in a released statement.  “Our movement cannot win unless we recognize that the 90% of Americans who do not own their own business and the 70% of Americans who do not have a college degree need a champion.  I am prepared to fight for them and I am thrilled to have Walt Rogers standing side-by-side with me in Iowa.”

“I am thrilled to be a part of Senator Santorum’s efforts to fight for the American worker and family here in Iowa today.  Senator Santorum has been consistent and passionate in his efforts to fight for hard-working families,” Rogers stated.  “This is exactly the type of message that resonates here in Iowa, and it is why he defied the Beltway pundits to win our Caucus in 2012.  Hard-working Iowa families understand that Rick Santorum is a champion for them and I am looking forward to helping Senator Santorum take this message all across Iowa.”
