Rick Santorum Announces Exploratory Committee





Rick Santorum announced tonight on Greta Van Sustren’s show that he is creating a presidential exploratory committee for 2012.

The test for me is whether we can raise the money that’s necessary. So, I’m gonna set up a committee, a testing the waters committee.

Cubachi believes setting up this committee is a good thing for Santorum

Santorum, a blunt-talking conservative who once was the No. 3 Senate Republican, has made frequent visits to the early nominating states of New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina. On Thursday, he was scheduled to lead a town hall-style meeting on the economy at New England College in Henniker, N.H.

His campaign slogan – “Fighting to make America, America again” – was likely to resonate with voters who doubt President Barack Obama’s patriotism. A familiar conservative criticism of Obama is that he isn’t proud of the United States.

The Daily Caller

Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum announced Wednesday night that he will explore a run for the Republican presidential nomination, making him the second GOP contender in as many days to make his intentions official.

“It’s time for America to be America again — an America that rewards innovation and hard work, that stands by our allies instead of our enemies, that protects even the most vulnerable of our society, and an America that says every life is to be cherished,” he said. “That is what I believe in, and that’s why I’m taking this next step in a possible run for president.”
