LAFAYETTE, LA – Winner of the 2012 Louisiana Republican presidential primary, former U.S. Senator, and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum today announced his endorsement of former Congressman and attorney Jeff Landry in his bid to become Louisiana's next Attorney General.

Rick Santorum said: “I have known Jeff Landry for a number of years and have always been impressed by his principled, conservative leadership. Jeff is not just a lifelong Republican, but a lifelong conservative who is committed to bettering his community and the State of Louisiana. Jeff has shown his commitment to public service as a decorated veteran, as a sheriff, and a Member of Congress, and I am proud to support his candidacy to be Louisiana's next Attorney General. We need a proven conservative like Jeff Landry as Louisiana's next Attorney General to fight the regulatory overreach of President Obama and his Administration.”

Jeff Landry said: “Senator Santorum is a well-known, national leader in the conservative movement. Rick's support of faith, family, and freedom earned him the majority of Louisiana Republican Presidential Primary voters. I am thrilled to have Senator Santorum's endorsement as we work to bring honesty, integrity and conservative principles to the Attorney General's Office.”
