State Reps. Bill Herbkersman, R-Bluffton, and Andy Patrick, R-Hilton Head Island, have endorsed the White House bid of former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, according to a news release.

"He understands that American exceptionalism is found in our founding principles, that each and every American has been given rights, and that it is the government's job to simply protect those rights, not spread them around," Patrick said.

Herbkersman agreed, saying Santorum "understands the strong values of South Carolina families, and he has been embraced by South Carolinians for his strong leadership, values and conviction."
