Perhaps Santorum had a secret weapon that helped get him as far as he did: the First Love Band.
Consisting of Tulsa sisters 20-year-old Camille Harris and 18-year-old Haley Harris, the band wrote a song, “Game On,” that not only gave Santorum an endorsement, but a ringing one, at that.
When Santorum heard the tune, he tweeted about it and the YouTube video quickly racked up more than 1 million views. Santorum even gave the girls a shout-out during his concession speech.
Now that Santorum is out of the race, the sisters, home-schooled daughters of a Tulsa pastor, don’t plan on hanging up their microphones and guitars just yet.
“We’re going to support whoever the nominee becomes for the Republican Party. I don’t know if that means writing another song,” Camille told CFN.
“We’re just really bummed about Santorum being out.”
David Harris, the sisters’ father, was also bummed.
“I spent a good portion of the day crying. I was very emotional about this,” David said.
While the Harrises said they will be backing any Republican nominee, they are still hoping for a Romney-Santorum ticket, which might mean a chance to perform at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Fla.
