Santorum Tells Minnesotans The Race Is Still On

LUVERNE, M.N. (AP) — As political eyes remain fixed on Florida, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum delivered a message to Minnesotans: The race is still on.

Santorum says that Minnesota doesn’t get the attention of states with earlier caucuses, but he says the state’s caucuses are “just as important.”

Santorum greeted about 300 people Monday night at the Palace Theatre in Luverne. Former Mayor Bill Weber says organizers had planned the event at the Pizza Ranch but shifted venues as the guest list grew.

Tuesday marks Florida’s primary, in which Santorum isn’t polling well. After a weekend with family, he seemed to shift gears to build on the momentum of his late-announced Iowa caucus win.

Santorum told the crowd he plans to “be in it until the end.” Minnesota’s non-binding caucuses are Feb. 7.

    He’s right…the race is still on… but we’ve all been to the race where we have to wait for the straggler (Rick) to cross the finish line and give him a courtesy applause.

    Time to give up, Rick. Go home…. sit and watch the rest of your group make fools of themselves.

    Mr Santorum is right, we need to join together and back Ron Paul. Dr Paul has the support of the military and the young people.

    Romney is McCain all over again and Gingrich has too many ex wife problems. I hope Santorum endorses Ron Paul soon….

    1. Ron Paul or Else says:

      LOL, Santorum endorses Ron Paul soon… LOL!!!!! Oh Well, I think I’ll show up at his event with my Ron Paul gear on. Then I’ll discuss blowback with Ricks supporters.
