Trump Goes After Santorum on 2006 Senate Loss

Donald Trump criticized GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum today for his election history, specifically the former Pennsylvania senator's 2006 election bid, which he lost by a huge margin.

“He lost his election in Pennsylvania running as a sitting senator -- by 19 points,” Trump said on NBC’s Today. “So the people that knew him best turned him out and let him go locally.”

 

Trump, who has endorsed Mitt Romney, added that it’s “hard to believe” Santorum is edging Romney in recent polls.

“I don’t get it," he said. "I don’t see why [Romney’s] not catching on better.”
