CAMPAIGN 2012

Santorum Raises $1 Million in a Day

Brentwood, N.H. – Aides to Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said the newly christened front-runner raised $1 million in small donations in less than 24 hours after his strong finish in the Iowa caucuses.

An upbeat Santorum, touting the momentum of his newly-surging campaign, also said that he brought in 50 percent of all the money he had raised to date on Wednesday. Santorum came in second to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who beat out the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania by just eight votes.

 

Battling perceptions that his social conservative views won’t appeal to New Hampshire voters, who are more moderate than Iowa’s Republicans, and that he does not have the resources to compete, Santorum entreated his supporters to reject conventional wisdom at a campaign event, where about 200 jammed into the Rockingham County Nursing Home in Brentwood.

“How many pundits were right over the last six months about what was going to happen in this race? None! Serially wrong!” Santorum said. “I mean they’re worse than weathermen. So don’t trust them. Trust yourself.”
