Rev. Ted Haggard Denies Endorsing Rick Santorum Despite Being Credited with Spurring Colorado Victory
Horrace Petticlaw, who helped organize Haggard's followers to support Santorum, said: "I was right in the next room. Ted was getting rubbed down pretty good by a new massage therapist named Bruce. And plain as day, I heard him telling the guy, 'I love Santorum. Nothing would please God more than you helping me get Santorum all over the place.' Well after that, I knew what I had to do. What the Lord wanted all of us to do."
Many believe the aggressive campaigning efforts of Haggard's congregation drove Santorum to his victory. But in a strange twist that threw the members of St. James Church into a state of confusion, Haggard told local media that he had no knowledge of the former Pennsylvania senator or his candidacy. More to come as details unfold.
