Santorum visits the Lowcountry

Presidential candidate and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Penn., was in Beaufort County on Wednesday. He held a town hall luncheon with residents of Sun City Hilton Head, where he was joined by former U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, state Sen. Tom Davis, state Rep. Bill Herbkersman, and Beaufort County Councilman Jerry Stewart, according to a campaign news release.

"Karen and I and the kids have a special place in our hearts for Hilton Head and the Lowcountry," Santorum said in the release. "My younger brother Dan (Santorum) and his wonderful wife Missy have been active in this community since 1984. We absolutely love visiting here."
