Rick Santorum Says He’s In for 2016

Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum is making a return to the presidential campaign trail, spelling out part of his 2016 strategy in an interview with the Washington Post.

The former senator from Pennsylvania isn’t getting as much attention as other potential 2016 Republicans, but Santorum is already talking as if he’s a candidate.

“America loves an underdog. We’re definitely the underdog in this race,” he told Karen Tumulty on Tuesday.

Santorum was certainly an underdog last time, too. He was polling in the single digits in the fall of 2011 but eventually became the surprise winner of the Iowa caucuses, besting Mitt Romney by 34 votes.

His victories forced Romney into a competitive primary season, winning contests in nearly a dozen states. He didn’t drop out until April 10.

Being underestimated again “has given me a lot of latitude,” he said in the interview on Tuesday.
