Rick Santorum gave a stump speech to supporters in Nevada, on the night of the Florida primary (a contest from which he had effectively withdrawn, preferring to focus on the lower-cost western caucus state this weekend).
Santorum announced to the applauding crowd that his disabled infant daughter Bella, who was hospitalized over the weekend, will be coming home tomorrow. He then continued with his stump speech, saying there needed to be a focus on the issues of the race — and announcing how he would go about it.
“Tomorrow we’re gonna give a speech on Romneycare and Obamacare. We’re gonna talk about the issues that are important to the people of Nevada, important to the people of Colorado, and Minnesota and Missouri — the states that are up next in this next go-around in the next week.
“We meed a candidate who can get up on the issues of health care, and draw a clear contrast with President Obama. We need someone who can get up on the issue of cap and trade, and government using environmentalism to be able to crush the businesses of our country, and draw a clear contrast with President Obama. We need someone on the issue of Wall Street and the bailouts.”
