April 28, 2011

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum will visit Dordt College Monday, May 2, as part of a Presidential Lecture Series hosted by The Family Leader. He will be speaking in Dordt’s Campus Center at 4:30 p.m. in an event that is free and open to the public. He will be available to the media at 3:15 p.m.

Santorum has served in the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania from 1991 to 1994. He served in the senate for two terms beginning in 1994.

“Iowans play a vital role in hosting the first in the nation presidential caucus,” said Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The Family Leader. The group’s lecture series gives Northwest Iowans a chance to meet and evaluate the candidates in person.”

Dordt College is one of three Iowa venues for the series. Candidates will be making stops at Pella Christian High School and the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

Dordt College is pleased to provide a venue for the series and has a history of hosting candidates for public office as a way to promote civic awareness and political engagement by Christians. The forums give Dordt students and the surrounding community an opportunity to participate in the events, meet the candidates, and learn more about the political process.
