Santorum Staffs Up in Iowa, New Hampshire

Former senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) launched a presidential exploratory committee in mid-April, and today we're seeing another sign that he's serious about entering the 2012 Republican race, as The Iowa Independent reports that his committee is adding a total of four staffers in Iowa and New Hampshire:

Jamie Johnson of Stratford will serve as the campaign's state coalitions director, managing Santorum's statewide coalitions and grassroots efforts. Johnson is a 20-year veteran of political campaigns and a frequent speaker at Iowa tea party events, according to the campaign. ... In New Hampshire, the Santorum campaign is adding Kristin Beaulieu of Nashua and Tyler Carlisle of Manchester as field representatives.
