Santorum Makes Campaign Stop In Hudson, Wis.

HUDSON, Wis. (WCCO/AP) — Presidential candidate Rick Santorum spent some time in Hudson, Wis. Friday, trying to pick up support before Wisconsin’s primary next Tuesday.

A new poll shows Mitt Romney leading in the state. Among likely primary voters, Romney has 40 percent to Santorum’s 33 percent. Ron Paul is third with 11 percent. Newt Gingrich is last with 8 percent.

“Seven points down in the last poll I saw this morning, that’s nothing,” said supporter Daniel Cleveland, of Woodville, Wis. “He’s upset Romney before. If we can get the western side of Wisconsin mobilized and cut Madison out, we’ve got a good chance.”

On Friday, Santorum said Republicans won’t win the presidency by nominating a candidate who jokes about firing people.

Santorum was talking about rival Romney, who joked earlier this week about his father, the former chairman of American Motors, closing a factory in Michigan and moving production to Wisconsin.

Santorum suggested Friday that the quip is more evidence that Romney doesn’t understand the struggles of working people. He says working people are the ones who will decide the outcome of the presidential election in November.

Santorum said Romney’s only argument is that he has “the math” to win. Santorum says vision, not math, is the key to victory.
