Rick Santorum Picks Up The Pace

You have probably seen all over the news and on the web today that Rick Santorum is surging in key primary and caucus states. According to two polls just out, Rick has now moved ahead of Mitt Romney in Minnesota and Missouri.
And the Romney argument that he is the strongest Republican to defeat Obama was shattered over the weekend with the release of a new Rasmussen survey that revealed that only one Republican Presidential candidate would beat Obama if the election were today…Rick Santorum.

Evidently, this news has Romney very worried because today he aimed his well -backed attack machine squarely at Santorum, firing relentless amounts of mud and inaccuracies. Romney even joined the attacks personally. Why would Romney attack so forcefully? Two reasons. First, he sees Rick rising in the polls. Second, Romney knows he cannot run on his own record of supporting big government healthcare mandates, supporting radical environmental positions like Cap and Trade, and supporting the biggest earmark in American history…the Wall Street bailouts.
What Romney does not know is that we have a secret weapon to fight against his attack machine. It is thousands of conservatives who understand that we need a Presidential nominee who does more than just talk a good conservative game, but lives it every day.
