Santorum to focus on new Patriot Voices

Los Angeles Times
 

WASHINGTON – In the two months since Rick Santorum withdrew from the Republican presidential race, the former Pennsylvania senator has faded from the spotlight. He delivered his endorsement of Mitt Romney in a midnight missive and has yet to join the presumptive GOP nominee on the campaign trail.

But he resurfaced Friday, telling “Fox & Friends” that he was embarking on his next adventure – the launch of a group that will focus on issues he championed during the campaign, including family values, religious liberty, adherence to the Constitution and his opposition to same-sex marriage.

The 501(c)4 nonprofit organization, which he is calling Patriot Voices, would seek to bring in voters of both parties to draw more attention to those issues in 2012 and beyond.

Santorum brushed off a question Friday about his once frosty relationship with Romney, stating that their private meeting in May in Pittsburgh went “exceptionally well.”
