Santorum To Tout Conservative Agenda

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Former U.S. Sen. and possible presidential candidate Rick Santorum is taking his conservative message to Pennsylvania’s capital.

Santorum was the featured speaker at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon in Harrisburg on Monday.

He was the third-ranking Senate Republican when Democrat Bob Casey ousted him in the 2006 election.

The 52-year-old Santorum is among a number of Republicans weighing their chances in the 2012 White House race. In March, he spoke out against abortion at a gathering of evangelicals in Iowa, whose caucuses are among the first electoral events in presidential campaigns. At a conservative gathering in New Orleans in April, he said Republican leadership in Washington let American down before Democrats took control in 2008.
