Santorum Shows Support for “R&R” in Akron

Santorum is to headline a Romney-Ryan rally today in Akron, Ohio.

Once a Republican presidential nominee himself, former PA Senator Rick Santorum has publicly endorsed Mitt Romney since May, Santorum plans to show his full enthusiasm of Romney-Ryan by headlining an event in Akron, Ohio today at 3 p.m.

The two may have started off on shaky ground. The email was sent late at night to his supporters, and many said the endorsement was less than enthusiastic.

But Santorum has since appeared a few times on the presidential nominee’s behalf, and his support earned him a speaking slot at the August RNC meeting in Tampa.

Since Romney announced his pick of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and created the “R&R” ticket, Santorum has shown he’s on board with a full endorsement of the Rep. that touched on the ideas Santorum himself promoted in the Senate:

“Congressman Paul Ryan is an outstanding choice as our country’s next Vice President, and today’s announcement demonstrates Governor Romney’s commitment to returning fiscal sanity back to Washington, DC,” he said in a press statement.

“I have long supported Paul Ryan’s fiscal and entitlement reforms to return our country back on a path of fiscal health. At a time when our country is at an economic crossroads, Congressman Ryan’s depth of knowledge on how to tackle these challenges is unparalleled. He will serve Governor Romney and our country well to undo the flawed policies of the last four years.”

Wednesday, Santorum will continue to show his support of the duo while hosting an event in swing state Ohio. The event, “Who Shares Your Values,” will rally support for Romney-Ryan.

“Who Shares Your Values” comes just a couple of weeks after Romney’s massive bus tour, during which the Romney camp hosted “Strengthening the Middle Class” events in 12 states, including both Ohio and Pennsylvania.
