The call tells its recipients to call Santorum and "ask him to apologize for his longtime support of radical pro-abortion politicians," giving the phone number of the conservative think thank in Washington where he is a senior fellow, the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The call does not give any identifying information about who was behind it. And Santorum's people over at his PAC, America's Foundation, don't seem to know, either.

"I do not know who's behind the robocalls," said Santorum spokesperson Virginia Davis, in an e-mail to TPMDC. "Clearly someone is concerned that Rick Santorum is gaining some traction in Iowa, but it's disappointing that they felt the need to deceive Iowans about his record. Rick Santorum will put his record up against anyone when it comes to championing social conservative causes."

Santorum has publicly said that he is considering a run for president. He has been visiting the three key primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
