Former U.S. Senator and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum will speak at Northwestern on Wednesday at the College Republicans’ fall speaker event, the group announced Friday.

Santorum will talk about national security, College Republicans said in a statement.

The politician represented Pennsylvania in the Senate from 1995 to 2007. He served two terms in the House of Representatives prior to that.

Santorum ran for the Republican nomination in the 2012 presidential campaign but dropped out of the race.

In a statement, College Republicans said Santorum’s past work on the Senate armed services committee qualifies him to speak about national security.

“NUCR is also happy to continue their tradition of presenting the Northwestern University community with diverse and varying opinions which may otherwise be absent from campus dialogue,” the group said in the statement. “They anticipate Sen. Santorum’s discussion of national security to do just that.”

Santorum will speak Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Fisk Hall.
