Santorum Says Republicans Need To Stand Up For What They Believe In

Rick and ScottRock Rapids, Iowa — It was probably the place with the highest concentration of Republicans and Republican office holders in the state Thursday night.

The Lyon County Republicans hosted a fundraising dinner in Rock Rapids and invited the Osceola, Sioux, and O’Brien County Republicans as well. There were several prominent speakers including Secretary of State Matt Shultz, Congressman Steve King, and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds. But the keynote speaker was Senator Rick Santorum, who won the Iowa Caucuses last year. Santorum did not come back to northwest Iowa to announce his candidacy for President in 2016, as some national media speculated. We asked Santorum why he DID come back to northwest Iowa.

Over 350 tickets were sold for the event.

Santorum encouraged the people at the event to fight — to stand up for what they believe and not sit idly by. He also told the people that the Republican party needs to reach out to all people. He says there are plenty of people who don’t like the policies of President Obama but some of these people think the Republican party doesn’t want them. He says he wanted to bring his message to Iowans because we have an impact as we get to see the Presidential candidates first.
