Former Presidential candidate Rick Santorum will be at the Texas G-O-P convention this June. He’s slated to speak at the Gala Banquet on Friday, June 8.

Santorum has a lot of supporters here in the Lone Star State. Before dropping out of the race, he was leading Governor Mitt Romney in the polls by more than 10 points.

In a statement today, Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri said

"I am very pleased that we have been able to confirm Senator Santorum’s appearance at our Convention Gala. His campaign was very active in Texas during the primary season and I am excited to offer our convention attendees the opportunity to hear from a major national figure in our Party."

Tickets to the convention gala cost 200-dollars.
