Santorum To Make It Official June 6

Rick Santorum will officially announce the start of his presidential campaign June 6 in Western Pennsylvania, the Hotline On Call has confirmed.

A source close to the campaign said that the former Pennsylvania senator will formally launch his campaign "on June 6 from southwestern Pennsylvania near where his grandfather worked in the coal mines after he came here from Italy."

"This location is significant because when Senator Santorum's grandfather left fascist Italy, he came to this country for America's freedom and the opportunity our nation afforded him." Santorum frequently attacks President Obama as an advocate of European-style socialism.

Santorum had left little but the timing of his announcement in doubt. He already has an exploratory presidential campaign committee and has been making frequent visits to early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.

Politico first reported the date and location of Santorum's announcement.
