Gary Bauer to Endorse Santorum

By    |   Saturday, 07 January 2012 08:18 PM

A source close to the presidential campaign of Rick Santorum told ABC News that their candidate will snag the endorsement of Christian conservative activist Gary Bauer on Sunday.

Bauer ran for president in 2000 and is part of the group of conservative leaders trying to tap which candidate the movement should embrace so as to stop Mitt Romney from winning primary contests all the way to the nomination -- with Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Ron Paul diluting the non-Romney vote.

Bauer, who chairs the Campaign for Working Families -- as reported by a variety of sources, including the Washington Post and CNN -- has concluded that of all the candidates, the former Pennsylvania senator comes closest to following the conservative principles of former president Ronald Reagan.

“Santorum is building that fire among the base,” Bauer said, according to a New York Times report. “He has the potential to bring a lot of middle class and working class voters to his banner if he got the nomination.”
