Santorum Launches Series of Major Policy Speeches
Presidential candidate Rick Santorum plans to roll out a series of detailed policy speeches as his campaign hits the mark of visiting 99 Iowa counties, reports ABC News.
Santorum is set to launch a “Faith, Family and Freedom Tour” on Friday in Iowa, a state on which the Santorum campaign is decidedly focused.
Santorum also plans to travel to New Hampshire and South Carolina in the coming weeks to give two additional speeches.
A campaign strategist told ABC News that Santorum plans to address in detail how his administration would focus on “returning to traditional American values of faith and family; promoting freedom via economic security and stability; energy independence and securing our nation from international threats.”
Hogan Gidley, Santorum’s national communications director, said that during the candidate’s “Faith, Family, and Freedom Tour,” he hopes to bring to the forefront issues that have received less attention so far during the primary season.
“The press would have you believe that the only issue is the economy – and yes, the economy is certainly a pressing issue – however, to have debates with no questions about the threat of a nuclear Iran and no questions about preserving the traditional American family is a disservice to the American people,” Gidley said.
