Stemberger, who originally backed Rick Perry, attended the meeting of evangelical leaders over the weekend in Texas that resulted in a vote to back Santorum as the Romney alternative. Stemberger said he was the only Floridian at the meeting.

“Senator Santorum has been a champion for the timeless values of life, marriage, family and religious liberty. His personal life and character is a genuine reflection of the principles he stands for in every way," Stemberger said in a statement. "He is the only candidate in this race who has consistently argued during debates for the primacy of the family unit as the basis for social order and a sound economy. As an economic conservative, Rick Santorum can also unite the tea party, evangelicals and pro-life Catholics to form a winning coalition. I am proud to give my full support to Rick Santorum for President of the United States.”
