Santorum cuts ad for Alabama House candidate

"I'm proud to support a true conservative — Quin Hillyer for Congress -— because he shares my values," Santorum says in the ad. "Quin Hillyer supports defunding ObamaCare and opposes raising the debt ceiling for Obama's reckless spending."

The ad has $25,000 behind it. The primary is set for Sept. 24, with a Nov. 5 runoff if none of the five candidates in the race reach 50 percent support, a likely scenario.

Hillyer is running to replace Rep. Jo Bonner (R-Ala.), who resigned from Congress for a job with Alabama's university system. Hillyer is facing a crowded primary field.
