Santorum to Make Public Appearances at Grange Fair, Penn State University Park
U.S. presidential candidate and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum will make two public appearances Tuesday in Centre County, local political organizers confirmed.
The first is tentatively scheduled for roughly 3:30 p.m. at the Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair, in Centre Hall, county Republican Committee Executive Director Deb Flavin said. There, he's expected to meet and mingle with fair-goers.
Later in the day, Santorum is expected to appear at a private event in Toftrees. Then, about 7 p.m., Santorum will be at the HUB-Robeson Center -- on the Penn State University Park campus -- at a university College Republicans event.
That meet-and-greet event, in room 106, will be open to the public, organizers said. Santorum, a Penn State alumnus, was president of the College Republicans at the university for part of the 1980s, when he was a student.
Santorum will be in Centre County as he makes a fundraising-and-campaigning swing through Pennsylvania, though he's not expected to hold any money-raising events Tuesday in this county, said state Republican Party Vice-Chair Joyce Haas.
