“It says no surrender Rick Santorum for President. I think based on his experience and he’s come up with a lot of Democrats in the past I think he’s in this for the fight. I think he’s a warrior and what we need for this campaign and history,” said Santorum supporter Joe Flanders.

Behind Mitt Romney and Ron Paul in the polls, Santorum is putting all his energy into the hawkeye state, moving his entire family to Iowa int order to meet residents in all 99 counties.

“He stands for a lot of the same values and moral values my husband I stand for,” said Joy Falk who plans on caucusing for Santorum.
