Rick Santorum Makes Surprise Visit To Coachella Valley

INDIAN WELLS (CBS) —  Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Rick Santorum is in the Coachella Valley this weekend.

Pennsylvania’s former Senator made a surprise appearance at a Catholic church and school fundraiser in Indian Wells, the Desert Sun reported Sunday.

Steve Garvey, a onetime Los Angeles Dodgers player, introduced Santortum at the Renaissance Esmerelda Saturday night in Indian Wells, according to the newspaper.

Santorum’s campaign gained momentum with victories in three state primaries last week.

Last year, former President George W. Bush attended the event, which is an annual fundraiser for the Sacred Heart Church and School in Indian Wells, according to the newspaper.

It was not announced beforehand that Santorum would appear, and it was not known if the candidate was in California for other appearances or fundraising. The Republican California primary, with 172 delegates at stake, is June 5.

Santorum remained seated and made no public remarks, the Sun reported.

Longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully was the keynote speaker.

    Ron Paul is winning the race- behind the scenes, with the most precinct delegates of any other candidate! Why? Because despite not having the MILLIONS in Goldman Sachs and SuperPAC dollars, Ron Paul supporters are committed to saving this nation from economic collapse and the destruction of our Constitution– and are willing to get involved at EVERY level of the process!

    Join the fight for our nation and donate anything you can to Ron Paul for the win!!

    Our goal is to raise 3million in under 24 hours! The biggest One-day fundraiser of the 2012 campaign! Remember that purchases from the campaign store count as a contribution, so purchase issue cards to hand out to your neighbors and wear a ron paul hat, hoody and pin every day!

    This election will be won with neighbors talking to neighbors, not by staring at the TV and wondering why they never talk about anything important to the American public!!!! So spread the word!

    Repost this EVERYWHERE!!! WE NEED YOU TO HELP US RESTORE AMERICA NOW!!!
