Rick Santorum appears to be eyeing the White House again, with the former Pennsylvania senator telling Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg that he may run for president in 2016.
“I’m certainly leaving the door open for that,’’ Santorum revealed on “The Steve Malzberg Show’’ Wednesday afternoon.
“I’m making no commitments at this point, but we’re not doing anything inconsistent with running in 2016.’’
Santorum blamed the Republican Party’s advisors for steering GOP candidates away from the core conservative messages that they should be delivering.
This last election, I proudly went through the process and stood for election for Rick Santorum as a Delegate-Alternate, because he stood for many of the same values I hold close, and as a member of a Catholic family with a special needs child, his personal experience resonated very closely with mine.
But after he withdrew, the shiny-newness seems to have come off his campaign, and as he prepared for the next step, at least in South Dakota, despite warnings, his organization made some bad staffing decisions.
Rick Santorum, I want to love you (as a candidate), but there’s just something standing in our way. If you want me back, you’re going to have to change your ways if you want my support in 2016.
