Santorum endorses Romney for President

In a late night email to his supporters on Monday, former presidential nominee Rick Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney for the election. He cited their similar stances on the economy and family values.

Santorum dropped his bid last month after Romney won a solid lead in the race. Sanotrum represented the social conservatives of the Republican party, a demographic Romney has had trouble wooing.

Santorum met with Romney privately in Pittsburgh last Friday to “assess his stance on issues important to social conservatives and tea party supporters.” He wanted to insure that Romney would have an “appropriate representation” of conservatives in his administration.

“Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated,” said Santorum in his email. “The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.”

Despite the differences between the two Republican’s during the race, Santorum said he agreed with Romney on “the need for lower taxes, smaller government, and a reduction in out-of-control spending. We certainly agree that abortion is wrong and marriage should be between one man and one woman.”

He continued in his email to say that, “The family and its foundational role in America’s economic success, a central point of our campaign, was discussed at length. I was impressed with the governor’s deep understanding of this connection and his commitment to economic policies that preserve and strengthen families.”
