NATIONAL CONSERVATIVE LEADERS COALESCE
Pleasant, SC - Today in Texas, national conservative leaders united
behind the candidacy of Republican Presidential candidate Rick
Santorum. Rick Santorum made the following statement in response to the
Santorum said: "This is an endorsement that was coveted by every
campaign, and I am deeply honored by their support - it is a great day
for our campaign. The process has worked, the voters have gotten a
chance to hear from every candidate and explore their records. This
endorsement is another indication that it is time to coalesce behind
the full spectrum conservative in this race who will fight for their
values and won't waiver when times get tough. Now is the time to stop a
moderate from becoming our Party's nominee and to unite behind the one
candidate who draws the sharpest contrasts with Barack Obama. I am
thankful for this outpouring of support and for the momentum that is
building behind our candidacy. Together, in the Fall, we can defeat
Barack Obama and restore America."

favorability rating going up four points in the last week while Mitt
Romney's has gone down seven. Also, it shows that Newt is the top
