Santorum Endorses Romney… in 2008

My friend Tim Dalrymple asked if anyone had the full transcript of Rick Santorum’s endorsement of Gov. Romney during the last  Presidential cycle.  I found this release, which is interesting reading these days.  As you read it, realize that Gov. Romney hasn’t changed positions at all… but Santorum is certainly singing a different tune.

BOSTON, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) announced his endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney.

Senator Santorum served two terms in the United States Senate where he was also Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, the third-ranking member of the Republican leadership.

“In a few short days, Republicans from across this country will decide
more than their party’s nominee. They will decide the very future of our party and the conservative coalition that Ronald Reagan built.
Conservatives can no longer afford to stand on the sidelines in this
election, and Governor Romney is the candidate who will stand up for the conservative principles that we hold dear,” said Senator Santorum.

“Governor Romney has a deep understanding of the important issues
confronting our country today, and he is the clear conservative candidate that can go into the general election with a united Republican party.”

Announcing Senator Santorum’s support, Governor Romney said, “I am honored to have Senator Santorum’s support. Throughout his career of public service, he has always led with a steadfast commitment to our party’s conservative principles. He has fought for life, marriage, tax cuts and a stronger national defense. In the coming days, I look forward to working with him as we fight for our party’s conservative foundations.”
