Rick Santorum to Visit Penn State Tuesday

Former two-term United States Senator and current Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is hitting the campaign trail this week and has several events planned in Centre County on Tuesday. Santorum, who graduated from Penn State in 1980, is scheduled to appear at the Centre County Grange Fair early in the afternoon and will later hold a public meet-and-greet in the HUB-Robeson Center.

Santorum, who is coming off a strong fourth place finish in the Ames Straw Poll, is in the middle of a Pennsylvania fundraising and campaign swing where he will try to tap his home base as he prepares for the upcoming Republican primaries.

The Penn State event is hosted by the College Republicans for which Santorum is a former President and will begin at approximately 7:00 PM in 106 HUB. The public is invited, but I would be cautious if you plan to research the candidate beforehand. Take my word for it.
