Rick Santorum endorses and helps get out the vote for Claudia Tenney (#NY22)

Rick Santorum endorses and helps get out the vote for Claudia Tenney (#NY22)

Momentum in closing day? Laura Ingraham urges listeners to support Tenney.

Claudia Tenney

Last night we wondered Will conservatives and Tea Party miss a golden opportunity in #NY22? and questioned why no big name national conservatives or Tea Party politicians were helping out in Claudia Tenney’s challenge to Richard Hanna in the safe Republican NY-22 District.

Tenney has faced over $1 million in negative false flag attack ads from Super PACs supporting Hanna. The anti-Tenney ads have run around the clock for weeks.

Rick Santorum has answered the challenge, recording a robocall that went out to 50,000 Republican voters in the District:

Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, announced that Senator Rick Santorum will be contacting 50,000 Republican households in New York supporting conservative Claudia Tenney who is running in New York’s 22nd Congressional District’s Republican Primary which is being held on June 24th.

Will anyone else step up to the plate?

In related developments, Washington Post notes Tenney’s strong challenge:

Keep an eye on the 22nd District, where Rep. Richard Hanna (R) faces a surprisingly strong challenge from Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney (R).

Laura Ingraham also has endorsed Tenney:

Added to endorsements from Sean Hannity and other media personalities, this will help Tenney.

Whether it is enough to overcome a month of non-stop anti-Tenney false flag attack ads remains to be seen.

Santorum is a loser.

    While no fan of Mr. Sanctorum (as I call him), you’d have to qualify your statement.

    He seems to be a winner in lots of areas, including being a good dad, which is no small thing to me.

      Yes, he managed to bill his old district in Pennsylvania for the costs of home-schooling his kids in DC, even though he hadn’t resided there in many years.

      And somehow was the only person in the country eligible for owner-occupied tax breaks in two different states.

      Great dad, showing kids how to beat the system. They can use that knowledge later.

Kudos to Rick Santorum for stepping up.

Santorum has also endorsed Henry McMasters, former state AG, for South Carolina Lt. Governor in the run-off.

Huckabee is endorsing Mike Campbell, son of the late former Governor.

Lt. Gov & individual congressional district primaries seem to be pretty deep in the weeds for endorsements from anyone who is not thinking of running for office themselves.

Possibly too little, too late. I think if these endorsements came in a week ago, they might have made more of a difference. I think tomorrow though that Tenney rises or falls on her own past performance. Let’s see how many of the Sheep are fooled and vote for Hanna.

Santorum is incredibly divisive. Many social conservatives like him, but a lot of the GOP detests him for his fiscal liberalism and his self-righteousness. Not sure this helps.

Where is Sarah Palin?
