Santorum Vows Not to Go Negative

Rick Santorum will not go negative with personal attacks in the presidential race, he said on Friday, attempting to draw a contrast between his campaign and those of his rivals Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

“If you mean negative by personally questioning their personal or business [past], no,” he said on NBC's Today. “I'm going to talk about the issues. I'm going to talk about my record, my vision for the country.”

He took aim at Gingrich and Romney, who spent the last several weeks duking it out over how they made their money, saying voters don’t care about that issue. “They don't care where you made money and how you made that money as long as you didn't do anything illegal, unethical,” Santorum said. “They are focused on how you will help them make money, provide for themselves and the family and build stronger communities in America.”

 

As Gingrich and Romney went after each other, Santorum made gains in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri—three states he won on Tuesday. Since his big day, the former Pennsylvania senator has brought in about a million dollars a day. Recent polls suggest he's gaining momentum among voters, as well.

Santorum is one of the three major GOP candidates who will speak today at the Conservative Political Action Conference, being held in Washington, D.C.
