Rick Santorum is working hard for the evangelical vote in Iowa, today campaigning with Jim Bob Duggar, of the TLC reality show "19 Kids and Counting."

Duggar and his wife are evangelicals, a key voting bloc Santorum hopes will boost him in tomorrow's caucuses.

Duggar, the dad on TLC’s popular family reality show, showed up with 12 of his kids and threw his support behind Santorum. Duggar was a GOP politician in Arkansa before the TLC show, and last election cycle had campaigned with Mike Huckabee.

“We are calling on Christian conservatives around the country to come together and send Rick to the White House,” he told London's Telegraph.

Though Duggar belongs to the evangelical quiverfull movement and Santorum is a Catholic, the share values. Both have large families (Santorum has seven kids) and both are big homeschooling advocates, and both are pro-life.
