Home-schooled sisters sing to support Santorum

GOP hopeful Rick Santorum doesn't have an official campaign song — yet. But two home-schooled sisters from Oklahoma are aiming to change that.

Haley and Camille Harris, who call themselves First Love, have written and recorded a Santorum support song called "Game On." Released on YouTube on Super Tuesday, the song includes the lyrics “Game on, join the fight/We’ve finally got a man who will stand for what is right/There is hope for our nation again/Maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan/There will be justice for the unborn, factories back on our shores/Where the Constitution rules our land/Yes, I believe Rick Santorum is our man.”

Santorum gave the girls a shout-out on Twitter, saying "Wow! I love this #GameOn song and video! Thank you Harris Family from Oklahoma!”

Haley, 18, told TODAY.com getting tweeted by Santorum was "so cool."

"We were amazed," said Camille. "We wrote the song and didn't know if it would really get to him."

Camille had tried to write a theme song for Santorum before “Game On,” but nothing came. “I couldn’t get anything good or catchy,” she said. “But all of a sudden on Sunday night when someone said, 'Write a song for Super Tuesday,' I said 'I’m gonna write it.' We just prayed and asked God to give us the words and that song came really fast.” 

They expected the video might get a few hundred views; as of this posting, it has more than 70,000. “We just wrote it not knowing what would happen," said Camille. "We support Santorum obviously a lot, but we’re not trying to write political songs. We’re not doing it for our music or for our band or for publicity. We’re doing it for Santorum.”

No word yet on whether or not "Game On" will become Santorum's official jam, though the move might break the heart of Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, who has publicly backed the candidate.

Daughters of a pastor in a family of eight, the girls live on four acres with 47 pecan trees. All of the Harris children have been home-schooled, much like Santorum’s kids. The girls say they are best friends, love coffee (though Haley prefers hot chocolate), have never bought a magazine and have never had cable (according to the girls, “Mom and Dad didn’t want to raise hoodlums :)”).

Camille, 20, said she has no desire to watch TV. "Even now, if I had the opportunity, I don’t choose to because they go against my value system. My dad’s like, 'You’re over 18. You can do whatever you want to do.’”

The girls have attended two of Santorum’s events in Tulsa. On her blog, Camille wrote that she was impressed by “how unashamedly he spoke his beliefs. He seems very stable and not easily shaken. In my opinion, that’s what this country needs. A true American that fully backs the Constitution.” At one rally, she scored a handshake and autograph, and passed the candidate some CDs of First Love’s music — before “Game On” hit the airwaves. 

Camille wrote, “What if he does become the next President of the United States? I’ll have this story either way :).”
