    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."
