Rick Santorum Endorses Ben Sasse in Nebraska Senate Race

The Cornhusker State Republican has earned the support of most conservative groups.

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Wednesday will endorse Republican Ben Sasse for Nebraska's Senate seat, National Journal has learned, yet another high-profile endorsement for the Cornhusker State conservative ahead of his competitive primary.

Santorum, who finished second to Mitt Romney in 2012's GOP presidential primary, is particularly popular with social conservatives, and in his endorsement, he touted Sasse's strict opposition to abortion rights.

"Ben Sasse will be a fighter on life issues and on issues that support our families," Santorum said in a statement. "Ben Sasse says he will be a 'champion for the unborn,' and I believe him. With Ben's leadership on pro-life issues and his family's long history of involvement in the pro-life cause, I know Ben will make the pro-life fight a central part of his Senate tenure on day one."

 

Sasse faces former state Treasurer Shane Osborne and bank President Sid Dinsdale in what has become a de facto three-man race for the state's GOP nomination. Sasse has been boosted by the support of most conservative groups, such as the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, and FreedomWorks, making him the front-runner in a race that's nevertheless expected to be very close. Nebraska's primary is May 13.
