Return of the Daily Santorum

Published by James O'Toole on .

After dropping from the presidential race, former Sen. Rick Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney in a middle –of-the-night e-mail to his supporters.  He’ll be showing his support in broad daylight Saturday as he joins GOP Senate candidate Tom Smith in opening a Romney victory office in the new Republican heartland of Westmoreland County.

They’ll be christening the Romney HQ on N. Maple Avenue in Greensburg at about 10 a.m. as the Republicans bolster their grass roots presence.  Without the burden of a primary fight, the Obama forces  have established a considerable head start in building out their campaign infrastructure in the state, with more than a score of offices already on the ground.  The GOP folks say they’re confident that they have the time and resources to catch up.

At about the same time, across the state, Sen. Pat Toomey will be helping to open another Romney office in Montgomery County, in the vote-rich suburbs of Philadelphia.

The GOP candidate himself will be in Western Pennsylvania Tuesday.
