Santorum Rallies Conservatives for Corbett

Former Senator Rick Santorum rallied his conservative supporters with an email on behalf of Governor Corbett.

Patriot Voices Political Action Committee was filed last year by Santorum to fight “for faith, family, freedom & opportunity in America.” The email Tuesday asked supporters to contribute financially to Corbett’s reelection campaign.

“My good friend, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett, has been under attack from the liberals in the state, the liberals in Washington, and the liberals in the news media, from the very first day he took office,” the email from Santorum reads. “Why? One very simple reason … he is living up to his promise to restore fiscal sanity in Pennsylvania using the conservative principles of lower taxes and less wasteful spending.”

Patriot Voices PAC expands beyond Pennsylvania, which Santorum addressed as well.

“If you live outside of Pennsylvania you might ask yourself, “Why should I help?”The answer is simple. Some of the most important progress being made in America is by Republican Governors like Tom Corbett who are fighting every day to restore fiscal sanity in America,” he wrote.  “By re-electing Governors like Tom Corbett in critical battleground states like Pennsylvania, we are setting the foundation for reclaiming the White House in 2016.”

In addition to the relevance to the 2016 election, Patriot Voices PAC also targeted Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-Montgomery), calling her Corbett’s “likely opponent” and criticizing her record of voting with the Obama administration and supporting the Affordable Care Act.

The Schwartz campaign didn’t seem threatened by Corbett’s ally in Rick Santorum.

“If Tom Corbett was looking for support from a Tea Party Republican more unpopular than himself, he succeeded in enlisting Rick Santorum. Tom Corbett and Rick Santorum represent an out of touch agenda, far from Pennsylvania’s mainstream, including comparing marriage equality to incest, denying the harmful effects of global warming and preventing women access to health care decisions,” Schwartz campaign manager Corey Dukes said. “Tom Corbett and his right-wing allies continue to attack Allyson Schwartz because they know she is the best candidate to bring bold, new, effective leadership to the stale Harrisburg status quo.”

  1. Anyone who thinks Corbett’s critics are limited to “liberals” either hasn’t been paying attention or lives in a delusional world of his own making. Case in point: Rick Santorum.

  2. Isaac L-

    It was my understanding that Corbett was prepared to endorse Santorum, but Santorum pulled out before the endorsement. So, Rick supporting Corbett should come as no surprise. (It’s not like Rick is going to support one of the Dems.)

    Besides, Rick’s sending out an email. Not like that is expensive to do.

    Maybe Rick can teach Corbett how to “surge from behind”. :-)

  3. Santorum just wants Gov. Corbett’s support when he makes another ridiculous bid for president. At least he used to be a principled bigot; now he’s just a sellout. It’s kind of sad, really.

  4. A loser supports a loser. Tom Corbett’s poll numbers are worse than Rick Santorum’s. Rich Santorum received 797,000 fewer votes in 2006 than 2000. Rick Santorum was a two term Senator when he lost,

    Rick Santorum is Pro Life Big Government and not The Forgotten Taxpayer’s friend.

    The Republicans had control of US House and US Senate and Presidency from 2001 to 2007 and what happened? More spending, more debt and bigger and more expensive government. Tom Corbett is Not The Forgotten Taxpayer’s Friend.

  5. Was Santorum’s name mentioned in the Dog Law Audit that was conducted by the Auditor General after his famous comment?

  6. FYI Senator: Bob Guzzardi has passed his RINO DNA test. Mr. Guzzardi is ideologically and racially pure.

  7. Acting Governor Brabender, our Dark Prince, is the Godfather of XXXX Santorum kids. John Brabender did such an excellent $23 million job for Mr. Santorum in 2006. Isn’t it time to give a very serious look at Bob Guzzardi, the courageous GOP challenger to the last gasps of the John Brabender Stangehold over the Keystone State? Bob Guzzardi is the Edmund Burke of PA and the voiceless masses of PA yearning for CHANGE!

  8. Read between the lines:
