Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting fame are campaigning hard for Rick Santorum, calling the Republican the "Man Of God" to lead the United States.

The ultra religious Duggar family backed the GOP presidential candidate early on, and have been emboldened by the underdog's recent surge to the top of many polls.

“We want a man that honors God to lead our nation,” Michelle Duggar said about the former Senator and why she's supporting him for the Republican party nomination.

“We have been praying to the Lord that if you want the heart of the voters to turn to Rick Santorum then please do so,” she said. “We prayed that more people would take a closer look at him, and more people are getting behind him.”

Jim Bob Duggar said he was impressed with Santorum, who recently gained another celeb endorsement from Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, throughout his career.

“He has a backbone of steel and a heart of gold," Jim Bob said. "He’s the family values candidate with a proven record. He honors life and stands for what is right. He’s on a shoestring budget, but we hope he will go from a pickup truck to Air Force One.”

In the coming weeks, Jim Bob and Michelle will keep spreading love for Santorum. NOTE: Google Rick Santorum for an interesting take on "Spreading Santorum."

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum's daughter Bella, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Trisomy 18, was hospitalized over the weekend.

Santorum left the presidential campaign trail in Florida to be with his three-year-old daughter Bella, the youngest of the former U.S. Senator's seven children.

Bella was admitted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Saturday but has since made a "miraculous turnaround," according to sources close to the candidate.

Rick Santorum’s 20-year-old daughter, Liz, appeared on his behalf in Sarasota, Fla., giving a brief speech to a crowd of about 250 at an airplane hangar.

"My dad wishes he could be here today," she said, according to The Palm Beach Post. "My dad today is exercising his most important role; being a dad."

Santorum also received some help from supporters Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, who spoke at campaign events on his behalf.

The Florida primary is tomorrow.

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has received a celebrity endorsement on the day of the Iowa caucuses. Or 19 of them, to be precise: The Duggar Family!

The TLC reality family joined the ultraconservative candidate in Iowa on the campaign trail, where he's battling Ron Paul and Mitt Romney with mere hours to go.

Confession time, though: Santorum is not their first choice.

Duggar and Santorum

"You may not agree with everything [Santorum] has done," Jim Bob Duggar said. "But you're not going to find the perfect candidate unless it's Jesus Christ running."

Santorum, to the family patriarch, is the next best thing.

"He's somebody that doesn't take a poll to know where he stands. I'm asking families, Christians all over America, to get behind Rick Santorum for president."

Duggar made his comments in Iowa, where he arrived after packing up a dozen of his kids in a big tour bus, freshly repainted to include Santorum's name.
