Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum will speak at a Tucson Tea Party event in Tucson next Wednesday, before a GOP debate in Mesa.

The former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania will make a campaign stop at the Sabbar Shrine Temple, 450 S. Tucson Blvd., a statement posted on the group's website said. Doors open at 10 a.m.; the hall holds about 450 people.

The conservative candidate had surprising wins last week in the Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado caucuses, but has trailed Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican nomination.

Arizona's GOP primary will be Feb. 28, the same day as Michigan's.

Nationally known as much for his Google problem as for his policy proposals, Santorum lost his Senate seat to Bob Casey by 18 points in the 2006 election.
