Santorum Back to Fight for Home State

A five-day break from campaigning will just have to be enough for Rick Santorum, who is struggling hard just to stay in the race with Republican party front-runner Mitt Romney, as the Pennsylvania primaries are looming up large, scheduled for April 24, only two weeks away.

Taking a bit of time off to celebrate Easter, tend to his ill daughter, and recoup his strength and plan a more successful campaign strategy, Santorum must now win his home state of Pennsylvania by a wide margin to continue as a realistic contender for the Republican nomination for candidate for president.

Winning Pennsylvania is easier said than done, however, as Romney’s supporters have been attacking the former conservative senator in several recently broadcasted television spots.

So far Santorum is not to be deterred from the fight, planning on holding rallies today in Bedford and then appearing at Penn State Dickinson School of Law, his alma-mater, despite talk that this is the end of Santorum.

“Clearly, once we get campaigning, then that will certainly quiet any talk of us doing anything other than moving full-speed ahead,” campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart said.

A short respite was granted Santorum by Romney’s campaign, which refrained from advertising on Monday out of respect for Santorum’s three-year-old daughter who suffers from a serious genetic disorder and had to be hospitalized because of it. Romney’s Super PAC, however, did not take a break from the campaign, continuing to air on television its campaign ads which were already purchased for $480,000.

Santorum’s Super PAC, or Santorum himself have yet to begin advertising in Pennsylvania. Spokeswoman Stewart said that the campaign does have the money, and ads should begin forthwith for the fight for Pennsylvania.
