Rick Santorum 2008: Mitt Romney "The Clear Conservative Candidate That Can Go Into The General Election With a United Republican Party"

This is gonna be the first of a few. Many on our side who are hammering Mitt Romney today were the same people endorsing him in 2008. Many who are launching shock and awe on Romneycare didn't say a word about it when they were calling Mitt Romney a conservative alternative 4 years ago.




The Boston Globe 2/1/2008

Mitt Romney picked up two endorsements today, one in a Super Tuesday state, the other in a state where he hopes to be still competing once its primary rolls around

The other endorsement is from former US Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, which doesn't vote until April 22. McCain hopes to have the nomination wrapped up by then.

Santorum, however, appealed to Republicans voting on Super Tuesday.

SANTORUM 2/1/2008: "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," Santorum said in a statement. "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."
