Santorum's New Michigan Ad Quotes Palin Endorsement;Strategy That Won Iowa.
Rick Santorum's team has prepared a new advert for release in the tightly contested Michigan primary. As Santorum did in Iowa when he was a distant candidate in a then crowded pack he has used a quote from Sarah Palin endorsing his pro-life views.
The end result of that was Santorum won the Iowa caucuses and had his profile lifted dramatically. The same result in Michigan is very much on the cards for him.
I have stated that in my opinion Romney's fatal error has been to not court Palin. Instead, he has gone on the attack against her (AT THIS LINK). Santorum, like Gingrich, wisely, has taken the other tack and is getting the reward for it.
Here is the video and the Palin quote plus positive and supporting quotes from other significant conservatives and, surprisingly, liberal outlets
"I adore Rick Santorum's conviction." - Mike Huckabee
"Santorum is the next George Washington." - Glenn Beck
"It would be great if he could get to the White House." - Rush Limbaugh
"Santorum... one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America." - Time Magazine
Rick Santorum has been "consistent protecting the sanctity of life." - Sarah Palin
"We score Santorum's economic agenda bolder than Romney's." - Wall Street Journal
"Rick Santorum, a Tea Party guy before the Tea Party even existed." - Washington Post
