Presidential candidate Rick Santorum's wife, Karen, told an interviewer that she is praying for her husband and "asking the Holy Spirit to speak through him.”

In an interview with CBN News' chief political correspondent David Brody that was conducted before Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, Karen Santorum was asked about "a peace, maybe some humble nature" that the couple has exhibited recently on the campaign trail.

 

"For me, so much of it is spiritual," Karen Santorum said. "When you’re aware of our Lord and His presence in your life everyday, when you’re moving through the crowds, when you’re giving speeches and me as Rick’s wife, I’m watching him, and the whole time he’s speaking, so often I’m just there praying for him, asking the Holy Spirit to speak through him. And feel like God’s hand of protection is upon us."

A devout Catholic, Rick Santorum has emphasized his religious views in seeking to appeal to religious conservatives.
