On the eve of the debate in Des Moines, Rick Santorum
's Republican presidential campaign added Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz to its growing list of supporters, according to a report in the Des Moines Register
A week after former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin slid into his corner but came up shy of a formal endorsement, Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz on Friday announced he is formally backing the campaign of the former Pennsylvania senator for the GOP presidential nomination.
At an event in Johnson, Santorum called Schultz's annoucement, "the best day of the campaign."
Schultz said at the event, :"I tend to like the underdog. Slow and steady wins the race."
Schultz urges Iowa voters to take a second look at Santorum before they make their decision at the Iowa caucuses Jan. 3rd.
