During tonight’s Republican debate Rick Santorum will be making his case for the party’s ticket.  In parts of the New York area orthodox Jewish community, Santorum’s case has already been made and it’s succeeded.

“He’s always been tough on the issues of importance,” a spokesman for Jewspickrick.com said.

The site has been organized by members of the orthodoxy in New York and New Jersey, based on social issues and foreign policy.

He won’t have to come in and need advisors on foreign policy and Israel, like some others. He will be ready on Day 1. He won four times in Pennsylvania, a Democratic state, and on gay marriage and abortion we know where he stands,” the spokesman said.

Members representing the group point to “family values” among other things, on it’s website, as part of the reason for their support of the former Senator.

“As a married father of seven, Santorum is uniquely qualified to understand family values in a manner aligned with the Orthodox Jewish community,” reads a statement from their website.

“Santorum has publicly come out and said he’s going to seek the Orthodox vote.  We’re here to say he has it,” the group’s spokesman told The Algemeiner.
