Santorum's New Friend In Congress

January 5, 2011

Newly-elected New Hampshire Rep. Frank Guinta doesn't want to endorse anyone in the 2012 presidential election yet. But, if nothing else, he knows former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) is putting together a good staff.

That's because the New Hampshire Union Leader reported Wednesday that Santorum has hired Mike Biundo to be his New Hampshire state director as Santorum continues to move toward a presidential bid.

Biundo was Guinta's primary strategist in his successful 2010 bid against former Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D).

Coming off the House floor after being sworn in Wednesday, Guinta told Hotline On Call that Biundo is among the best in New Hampshire.

"Mike's a great strategist," he said. "Sen. Santorum is very lucky to have him."

The hiring of Biundo wasn't enough for Guinta to endorse Santorum. He said he's still evaluating the potential contenders.

Guinta, the former mayor of Manchester and one of the National Republican Congressional Committee's top recruits, also said he won't get caught up in any divisions between the Tea Party faction of the Republican House caucus and the more moderate members.

"I'm focused on adhering to the promises I made during the campaign and reflecting what New Hampshire wants to do," he said.
