Santorum Super PAC Ad Warns Of ‘Small Bands Of Radicals’ Waging WWIII

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) is still vying for a slot on the Republican presidential ticket. The pro-Santorum Working Again PAC plans to air an ad throughout Iowa warning about an approaching third World War, Politico reported Monday.

A female narrator opens the radio ad with an ominous warning: “World War III is upon us.” (Listen to the radio ad here.)

“It’s not about atomic bombs leveling entire cities, it’s about small bands of radicals shooting up concerts and Christmas parties,” the narrator continued before directly attacking President Barack Obama’s leadership.

The ad then suggests Santorum, who won the 2012 Iowa caucus but failed to secure the Republican nomination, is the man to fill that power vacuum.

“Suggestion: How about the man who first sounded the alarm for Islamic extremism, called for a strategy to defeat them, and lead the fight to slap tough sanctions on Iran,” the narrator said. “A true conservative who understands the enemy we face and knows how to defeat them.”

The ad comes as Santorum’s campaign has failed to attract many voters, even among the key evangelical voting bloc in Iowa. Real Clear Politics puts Santorum’s national support at 0.2 percent and his support in Iowa at 0.8 percent.

A spokeswoman for the PAC told Politico the ad was scheduled to run for two weeks starting Tuesday or Wednesday and added there is “more planned for January.” The Iowa caucus is Feb. 1.
