Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum will join Gov. Sam Brownback on the campaign trail next week.

The Pennsylvania Republican will appear with Brownback at a rally at Warren Theatres, 11611 E. 13th St. in Wichita, on Monday afternoon. The event will include a screening of “Knute Rockne, All American,” a movie that features Ronald Reagan in his iconic role of George Gipp. Doors open at 3 p.m.

Cost of attendance will be $10 per person and $25 per family. Brownback and Santorum will hold a free event at Cars4Less in Olathe at 11:30 a.m. that day.

Santorum has been outspoken in his opposition to abortion and gay marriage. His hard-line positions on social issues have made him popular with religious conservatives nationally, but have also drawn controversy and criticism.

After representing Pennsylvania for two terms in the Senate, Santorum lost to Democrat Bob Casey Jr. by a vote of 59 percent to 41 percent in 2006. It was the biggest loss for an incumbent senator since 1980.

Santorum ran for president in 2012. He won the Republican presidential caucus in Kansas in March before dropping out of the race the following month.
