Rick Santorum endorses Coleman for Congress

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum Endorses Andy Coleman for Congress
Calls Coleman a Committed Conservative and National Security Leader

TULSA, OKLAHOMA: Today former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) endorsed Captain Andy Coleman for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District.

“Andy Coleman is exactly what Washington needs more of; a committed conservative with the foreign policy and national security experience necessary to make a real difference.  I served for eight years on the Senate Armed Services committee and saw first-hand the need for more veterans with real-world, on the ground experience in foreign affairs in the halls of Washington. Andy Coleman has the experience needed to be a leader on day one and as a defender of persecuted Christians in some of the most dangerous hot-spots in the world; I know he will never back down on his conservative values,” stated Santorum.

Santorum ran for the Republican nomination for President in 2012 and carried the state of Oklahoma in the Republican primary that year.  Every county in Oklahoma’s First Congressional District was carried by Santorum in 2012.

“I am truly honored and incredibly grateful to Senator Santorum for his support.  He has been a reliable defender of religious freedom, the innocent unborn and a leader on national security,” expressed Coleman.

Santorum’s endorsement comes on the heels of a surge of support for Coleman as he assembles a coalition of religious and national security conservatives drawn to his unique background and life experiences. 

Captain Andy Coleman is seeking the Republican nomination for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District.  He is an Air Force Academy graduate and former intelligence officer who served in the Middle East.  He is the only candidate in the race with military and national security experience – critical skill sets in short supply in the House.  For six years, Coleman led efforts to aid persecuted Christians in 17 hostile and restricted countries, as the Middle East Regional Director for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville.
