Bachmann backs Rohrer for U.S. Senate

By  | 

From the Harrisburg Patriot-News:

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sam Rohrer added Minnesota Congresswoman and former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to his growing list of high profile endorsements Wednesday, according to a campaign news release.

Though not endorsed by the state GOP, Rohrer had led in most polls until better-financed candidate Tom Smith recently began running television ads.

But Rohrer created a splash last weekend when former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain endorsed the former Berks County state representative in person at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, an annual gathering of commonwealth conservatives.

Rohrer told reporters during the conference that more heavy-hitter endorsements were coming and delivered Wednesday with Bachmann.

“Our campaign is gaining significant momentum and support from conservatives all over the country,” said Rohrer. “I am proud that conservative leaders like Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain have boldly backed my race against two candidates who were members of the Democratic Party before conveniently changing their party alliance prior to this election.”
