(CNN) - He might be an underdog as the 2012 presidential field shapes up, but former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum continues to put in some early legwork as he considers a White House bid.

Santorum will be the keynote speaker at the Dorchester County County Republican Party breakfast in South Carolina on May 22, the group said Monday. It will be his second trip to the early primary state in recent months.

His busy itinerary also includes a speech to the Iowa Christian Alliance next week – his second trip to the Hawkeye State - and a headline appearance at the headline the Cheshire County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner in New Hampshire in late April.

Santorum served two terms in the Senate before losing re-election in 2006.

UPDATE: This is Santorum's third trip to South Carolina, not his second.

    He may be *thinking* President, but all he's really qualified for is to tote the broom and dustpan behind Sarah Palin.

    This guy is a right wing hyprocrit and dangerous for our country. It would be a step back to the ideologs of the Bush years. While in Congress he fought to retstrict the rights of patients who were injured by negligent doctors. But when his wife was injured by medical negligence he had no qualms making sure she fully compensated for her injuries even while he was advocating that rights of others should be restricted. Just another example of why the Party of No and Tea Baggers are not the right answer for our country.
