We were clearly the underdog and we are starting out as looking at this race and we would be in the same position and so we are very comfortable there,” Santorum said. Santorum previously ran for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, where he came second to eventual nominee Mitt Romney. Santorum was known for his emphasis on social issues, which he told Greta would be part of any potential campaign. “…One of the principle reasons for the lack of economic opportunity is in fact the breakdown of the family.
