Santorum Returns to Iowa

More

Rick Santorum is doing one of two things: either he is seriously considering a presidential bid in 2012, or he is attempting to force his way into the national dialog by giving reporters the impression that he might be.

Either way: his political action committee announced that the former Pennsylvania senator intends to visit Council Bluffs, Iowa next Tuesday for the Pottawattamie County Republican Party Dutch Treat luncheon. The press release includes a curious quote from the acting chair of the county GOP, who suggests that Santorum's "conservative values will resonate well in Council Bluffs." This is Santorum's second trip to Iowa and his third trip in a year.
