Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum “open” to a 2016 Republican Presidential Bid

by Colonel on November 28, 2012

“Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum says he is “open” to another run for president in 2016. Santorum was asked about a possible presidential campaign Monday.

“I’m open to it, yeah,” Santorum replied. “I think there’s a fight right now as to what the soul of the Republican party’s going to be and the conservative movement, and we have something to say about that. I think from our battle, we’re not going to leave the field.”

The former senator argued the GOP could have performed better in the Midwest with a candidate, and a party, that did not “look askance” at a populist economic and social message. Santorum said he will be working with his organization, Patriot Voices, over the next couple of years. “We’re going to talk about all of the issues with an emphasis on cultural issues,” he said.
