Santorum Says His Ron Paul-Supporting Nephew Is Just Going Through ‘A Phase’

Rick Santorum’s 19-year-old nephew, John Garver, caused something of a stir when he wrote a Daily Caller op-ed announcing his support for Ron Paul.

According to a Daily Caller article, Santorum shrugged this off at a recent rally:

“I love my nephew,” a smiling Santorum said Wednesday night when asked about the op-ed. “I have 35 nieces and nephews, so one out of 35 is pretty good as far as I’m concerned.”

“He’s a Ron Paul supporter, God bless him,” he continued. “I mean, it’s a phase. I understand it. And so we all go through those things. God bless Johnny, it’s wonderful.”
