Rick Santorum Predicts a Win in Pennsylvania

Despite recent polling that shows Rick Santorum's lead collapsing in his home state of Pennsylvania, Santorum said he's confident the conservative base there will coalesce behind him and bring him a win in the Keystone State.

"I was the first conservative to really be out on the scene in Republican politics" in Pennsylvania, said Santorum, who represented the state in the U.S. Senate. "The conservatives have and will line up behind me. And I think we'll see a very good victory in Pennsylvania as a result."

 

Santorum said that, no matter what happens in Wisconsin, which votes on Tuesday, he'll stay in the race.

"We cannot do what we have done in the past as Republicans, which is and settle for something that we know is not going to be successful for us," he said on Fox News Sunday.

Santorum compared himself to Ronald Reagan, who trounced then-incumbent President Jimmy Carter in the 1980 presidential election.

"In the last 120 years, we've only defeated one Democratic incumbent president... Always, always, the establishment says, 'We gotta nominate a moderate, that's who's gonna win.' And the one time we didnt, with Ronald Reagan, that's when we won," he said.
