I was driving along I-75, heading to a last minute special event at Rocky's new campaign headquarters in Birmingham, listening to the Frank Beckman show. As I was wondering what the special event would be about, Frank introduced Senator Rick Santorum who was in town for the annual Reagan dinner as a speaker.  The senator told Frank that he already had endorsed Jay Riemersma (MI CD2)and Pete Hoekstra for Governor.  He was going to do some campaigning next for Rocky's campaign and endorse him.  So, the cat was out of the bag before I even got to the event.

At a great Birmingham location, people were just pouring in.  Standing room only, lots of excitement in the air. Finally, Rocky walked into the room with the Senator. I think I had goosebumps, Rocky actually introduced me and my husband to Senator Santorum and told him that I am with Icaucus. 

Santorum is an excellent speaker and got the crowd fired up about all current issues. He then proceeded talking about Rocky and what an excellent choice he will be for Michigan 9th with his State, Military and business experience. Watch here what else he had to say:

To top off this great day, the following was released :
A poll released today by Strategic National Consulting gives Rocky a substantial lead in the Republican primary to be held on August 3, 2010.
Welday 15%
Undecided 59%
"The big undecided number makes me want to work even harder, reaching out to every voter in the district, said Rocky. "That's why we need your help even more to get the word out. So, please volunteer or make a contribution today. "
The survey used Interactive Voice Response to gather the views of 900 likely Republican primary voters and the margin of error is 3.25%.
All in all, a great day for Rocky and all of us in support of him.
Oh, and here is my favorite photo.
