Grothman Gets Santorum Endorsement In Bid For Congress

Former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum has endorsed State Senator and U.S. House candidate Glenn Grothman for Tom Petri’s House seat.  Grothman announced the endorsement Thursday and said he is honored.  In a statement, Santorum said he is supporting Grothman because he has the bold leadership skills that Congress needs and has the courage and the conviction to stand up for conservative values. Grothman faces State Senator Joe Leibham of Sheboygan and State Assemblyman Duey Stroebel of Saukville in the August 12 Republican primary.
