Verona, PA - Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) announced the endorsements of several elected Republican officials and prominent activists in New Hampshire for his presidential exploratory efforts: Hillsborough County Attorney Dennis Hogan; New Hampshire State Representatives Randall Whitehead, Don LeBrun, Bill Ohm, and Kevin Brown; Merrimack Councilman Bill Boyd; and prominent activist Steven Lewis.

 

·         Hillsborough County Attorney Dennis Hogan represents two of the biggest cities in New Hampshire - Manchester and Nashua.  In 2006 he became the only person in New Hampshire history to run a successful write-in campaign for a party's nomination for State Senate and in 2009 the Nashua Republican City Committee made Hogan their chairperson.

 

·         State Representative Randall Whitehead of Nashua served as a Ward Chairman for Ronald Reagan's campaign, and his endorsement of Senator Santorum is his first presidential endorsement since his work on the Reagan campaign.

 

·         State Representative Don LeBrun of Nashua has served as a strong advocate for Veterans' rights and is an outspoken supporter of Israel.  In addition to his service in the New Hampshire state House of Representatives, LeBrun is a member of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association.

 

·         State Representative Bill Ohm of Nashua is an accomplished business executive who has more than 30 years of experience with high-tech companies, serving as Vice President and General Manager of ADE Technologies.

 

·         State Representative Kevin Brown is a lifelong resident of Nashua and is a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights.

 

·         Councilman Bill Boyd of Merrimack, in addition to his work on behalf of the people of Merrimack, chairs the Economic Development Citizens Advisory Committee in Merrimack, and represents the community as an alternate to the Town's Planning Board.

 

·         Steven Lewis of Atkinson has become one of New Hampshire's most prominent political activists and successful political fundraisers.  Lewis owns one of the state's largest development and building companies, Steven Lewis, Inc., and he served as one of Governor Bensons' chief supporters during his successful campaign for governor.

 

"I am pleased to welcome these conservative activists to our team.  I am confident that their support will be invaluable as we build the grassroots network necessary to get out our message of believing in the American people again," said Senator Santorum.
