Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Elizabeth Lempka and Make Keohan met through St. Andre Bessette church. Tommorow is the saint's feast day and they decided to celebrate by going to a town hall for Rick Santorum.
"Bessette was an illiterate humble man who was this little guy who worked in the New Hampshire. He was good and kind," said Elizabeth.

She and Mary are motivated by their Christian faith and the issue they care about the most is stopping legalized abortion. They walked away from Santorum's event hoping that he will be the president to put their values first.
"Rick Santorum is strong in what he believes and if you can come to understand a being in the womb is a human being on the other side of a woman's belly then you have fundamental values," Elizabeth told me. "If someone is prolife and respects the dignity of a child then you respect the dignity of a voter."
Mary was happy she had accompanied her friend because the event cemented her belief that she might be able to elect a candidate guided by faith.
"It was appropriate the rally was in front of a train station because the train is off the track," she said of the way our current government views faith. She became interested in Santorum after he did well in the Iowa caucus. This event "sealed the deal because I could see how authentic and intelligent he is and how to the point," she said.
