Former U. S. Senator from Pennsylvania Rick Santorum’s under-funded, on-again/off-again, up-and-down candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination was on the upswing for a while, and that made many of the GOP’s more conservative faction very happy until just recently.
However, Santorum’s political fortunes have been up and down for years, and his election to the U. S. House of Representatives in 1990 and 1992 and to the Senate in 1994 and 2000 can be contrasted against his catastrophic 41/59% loss to Democrat Bob Casey, Jr. in 2006, one of the greatest defeats ever for an incumbent Pennsylvania U. S. Senator.
Rick has also been up and down – and involved in significant controversies – in regard to several major issues during the past couple of decades, including the teaching of evolution vs. intelligent design in Pennsylvania’s public schools, the privatized funding of Social Security, being first pro-choice and later pro-life, women’s rights, and questioning the administration of the National Weather Service vs. paid private weather services.
In 2008, after being an early Mitt Romney supporter, Santorum endorsed John McCain for president when McCain chose former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate, saying that it was the right thing to do.
After winning GOP presidential caucuses in several states and losing in others more recently, Santorum was running nearly even with presumed front-runner Mitt Romney in the national polls, and he’s still well ahead of Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
