Glenn Grothman wins endorsement of former Senator Rick Santorum for U. S. Congress
Wisconsin Election Watch ^ | June 26, 2014 | Kyle Maichle

Posted on 06/28/2014 7:29:54 PM PDT by Wisconsinlady

When asked if the endorsement of Senator Santorum would change the complexion of the race for the GOP nomination in the 6th Congressional District, Senator Grothman said that he expected the establishment to go against his campaign and feels that the establishment does not like conservatives. Former Senator Santorum said that he is no big fan of the establishment.

The 6th Congressional District is located in parts of Northeastern and South Central Wisconsin. Major cities in the district include Beaver Dam, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Neenah, Oshkosh, Port Washington, and Sheboygan. The winner of the August 12th GOP primary between Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) and Joe Leibham (R-Sheboygan) would face off against Democrat Mark Harris (D-Oshkosh) in the November general election.

Glenn will be going up against an establishment Republican in the WI primary on August 12, 2014. He is running to replace our RINO, Tom Petri. The local and national RNCs are backing Joe Leibham who has been primed to take Petri's seat. The true conservative willing to fight for We the People is Glenn Grothman. While the other candidates dance around the tough issues with vague, canned answers, Glenn takes the tough problems as his platform. The number one issue he has fought against in WI is the proliferation of welfare. Glenn is not afraid to say the breakdown of the family is our # one problem in America. When a single welfare mom is better off on her own with $40,000 worth of benefits, than marrying her child's father; there is something wrong with the system. If you know anyone in the 6th district of WI, please encourage them to vote for and support Glenn. This fight is similar to the Cochran situation (GOP party base throwing all of its weight and money toward the chosen one who will stay in step). If you feel moved to avoid another situation where the establishment Republicans bully out the Tea Party candidate, please financially support Glenn Grothman.

Right. Glenn announced his decision to run against Petri. Two days later Duey Strobel announced. And within a week, Joe Leibham announced.

Several years ago, we BEGGED Leibham to run against Petri who had wasted space in Congress for the last 29 years, and Joe wouldn’t do it then. But this time he goes up against an awesome conservative.

So, we have 3 Republicans spending all of their money on a Republican primary and one of them will have to go up against the lone DemonCrat in November, who will have a war chest available to him.

Is Petri still alive? In my all too distant youth, we would gather at Young Republican national get togethers for rousing choruses of “Let’s send Petri back to Oshkosh!” to the tune of I’ve been workin’ on the railroad!

Crap. So why is the candidate of "Catholicism approved" Communism endorsing Glenn? A backhanded way for GOPe to scuttle Glenns conservative support?

Everyone ignore Santorum, Glenn needs our help.
