Rick Santorum Endorses Liljenquist for Utah US Senate

Former Presidential candidate and Senator Rick Santorum has endorsed Dan Liljenquist over Orrin Hatch in the US Senate race in Utah. In a letter to supporters of his new organization Patriot Voices, Santorum said he was prompted to make the endorsement after Glenn Beck asked him about the race:

Plain and simple, Dan Liljenquist is the stronger conservative in this race. I’ve known Orrin Hatch for years and believe he is a very good man, but in a deeply conservative state like Utah, we must elect authentic conservatives. I believe Dan Liljenquist is that candidate.

In addition to Liljenquist’s strong conservative credentials, Santorum also said Liljenquist’s record as a reformer makes him the kind of legislative leader needed in Washington now.

The Utah primary is on Tuesday, June 26. It’s likely that the Republican will go on to win the general election.

FreedomWorks for America has also endorsed Liljenquist:

“Dan Liljenquist is an energetic fiscal conservative who will take a leading role in spending cuts and the repeal of ObamaCare from day one,” commented Russ Walker, National Political Director for FreedomWorks for America.

“We have been working with Utah conservatives since last May to elect the strongest and most consistent advocate for conservative economic policy, and Dan has proven himself to be the man for the job. He will be a great addition to support fellow Utah Senator Mike Lee expanding the conservative coalition in the Senate.”

The Tea Partisan is an enthusiastic Liljenquist supporter, and look forward to seeing him in the United States Senate.
