Comptroller Susan Combs, the state's chief financial officer, endorsed Rick Santorum in the 2012 GOP primary for president today, telling the Tribune the former Pennsylvania senator is "the only real conservative left in the race."

"He has the intestinal fortitude to change the federal government. The direction of the country needs to be changed," Combs said.

Previously Combs had endorsed Gov. Rick Perry, campaigning with him in Iowa before that state's first-in-the-nation caucuses. Reminded that Perry has endorsed Santorum's rival, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, as the conservative the country needs, Combs said, "Respectfully, I have my own view. I'm more impressed by Senator Santorum."

Since KETK has twice removed the link I provided to Susan Combs racilal slur against Jews, I ll temp their censored bias form of journalism and just allow the reader to google Susan Combs and Jews and they themselves can read what this big government, big spender sees so wonderful about the fake conservative, Rick Santorium.

More propaganda !! Santorum is a fake conservative, well established record of spending and big government. He can't run on his record so he has shifted to a ultra-conservative religious right stance which limits womens rights to abortion and birth control...hence they get a woman to proclaim her support hoping women voters will be fooled into supporting a candidate that doesn't allow women to decide what's best for them.The GOP has lost it's footing with Romney and Santorum
