Republican Rick Santorum launches second White House run

“We cannot sit idly by as big government politicians make it hard for our workers”, he said.

Santorum joins a field that includes Ben Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon; Sen. He said he wanted to be the voice of working families. “My priority is you, the American worker”. Santorum briefly spoke about tax reform, specifically saying he is in favor of a flat tax rate.

“He tends to be more conservative than I am”, she said.

“I know what it’s like to be an underdog”, Santorum said, adding he managed to win 11 state nominating contests because “I stand for someone, the American worker”.

Santorum’s rollout tour begins in Iowa today and Friday and moves to South Carolina on Saturday and Sunday.

Santorum is among the nation’s most prominent social conservatives, having dedicated much of his political career to opposing same-sex marriage and abortion rights, while advocating for conservative Christian family values. Santorum is not too concerned though about the polls telling ABC News, “It’s early”. His recent position as a Christian film executive has been decidedly less high-profile than the platform of other candidates, such as Sen. However, he’ll face much more competition in 2016 for those voters.

His campaign will focus on “restoring the American dream for hardworking Americans”. Cruz appears regularly on television to comment on presidential powers and Senate issues and has become the voice of constitutional conservatives in the Republican Party.

He has said he wants to follow in the footsteps of previous Republican candidates, like George HW Bush and Ronald Reagan, who also finished second in the primaries before securing the nomination in the next election cycle. Yet he faces considerable challenges the second time around, and may not have enough public support to qualify for the first Republican presidential debate in August.

Santorum served two terms in the House before his election to a Pennsylvania Senateseat in 1994, when he won a close race against Democratic incumbent Harris Wofford.

Wow. The 2016 Presidential Race is getting packed!

“Look back to Iowa”, he said of the 2012 caucuses in which Santorum edged Romney by 34 votes, the closest in that state’s history.

“People who follow thoroughbred racing will tell you there is always a reason why you actually run the race, and that is because the unexpected can happen”, Goldford told the newspaper.
