CAMPAIGN 2012

Santorum: We're 'Going to Do Well Tonight'

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, whose poll ratings are soaring in Iowa, told ABC’s Good Morning America that his campaign is “going to do well tonight” in the state's Republican caucus.

Santorum said his campaign spent less than $2 million in Iowa while leading candidate Mitt Romney spent much more. He credited his success to doing things the “old-fashioned way” and raising support through voter contact.  

 

“We’ve done it through grassroots efforts, so for us to be in the mix right now is quite remarkable,” Santorum said later on Fox and Friends.

Defending himself against Rep. Michelle Bachmann's attacks for taking congressional earmarks, Santorum said earmarks were constitutionally sound.

"Congress appropriates money," Santorum said on ABC. "That's what Congress is supposed to do."

 

Santorum turned the heat on Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, calling his work on that state’s health care plan a sign that Romney had failed on the “biggest issue” in the election.

“The issue in this campaign will be the size and scale of government. And the biggest issue is health care,” Santorum said on ABC. “We cannot put up a presidential candidate who is, basically, in the same place as Barack Obama on government-run health care.”
