Santorum and Patriot Voices announce Walt Rogers as Iowa Chair


VERONA, PA - Winner of the 2012 Iowa Republican Caucus, former U.S. Senator, and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum announced today that Assistant Majority Leader of the Iowa State House, Walt Rogers (R-Cedar Falls), will serve as Chairman of Patriot Voices in Iowa. 

Rick Santorum said: "I am excited to announce the addition of Walt Rogers to our growing Iowa team and I am confident that his support today will again be a terrific lift for our efforts in the Hawkeye State.  Like me, Walt understands the importance of not just being a Party of business-owners, but being a Party that fights for the worker and hard-working families.  Our movement cannot win unless we recognize that the 90% of Americans who do not own their own business and the 70% of Americans who do not have a college degree need a champion.  I am prepared to fight for them and I am thrilled to have Walt Rogers standing side-by-side with me in Iowa."

Walt Rogers said: "I am thrilled to be a part of Senator Santorum's efforts to fight for the American worker and family here in Iowa today.  Senator Santorum has been consistent and passionate in his efforts to fight for hard-working families.  This is exactly the type of message that resonates here in Iowa, and it is why he defied the Beltway pundits to win our Caucus in 2012.  Hard-working Iowa families understand that Rick Santorum is a champion for them and I am looking forward to helping Senator Santorum take this message all across Iowa."

Walt Rogers currently represents the Cedar Falls area in the Iowa State Legislature, being elected by his peers to serve as Assistant Majority Leader, trusting him to manage some of the House's toughest legislation including a government transparency bill that had stalled in the legislature for seven years. Rogers is a nationally sought-after leadership consultant. His work through board memberships in Safe and Drug Free Committee, Alternatives Pregnancy Center, My Waterloo Days and Love Cedar Valley has honed his leadership skills and given him an appreciation for local grassroots efforts.  Rogers holds a Bachelor's degree in Technology from the University of Northern Iowa.  He and his wife Jenny (Ridder) have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
