Rick Santorum - "Game On!"

Santorum succeeded in the Iowa Caucus with a positive and old-school campaign.  He visited all 99 counties in Iowa and met with people on the ground in cafes and town halls.  While Iowa is not  a predictor of the eventual nominee, Santorum’s success is significant because it shows that Santorum is able to organize on the ground with limited money.  Imagine what Santorum can do in other states when more money floods into his campaign coffers!  This victory will surely prompt more people to donate to Rick Santorum.  Furthermore, if Bachmann and Perry drop out of the race, many of their voters will go to Santorum.  This will change the dynamics of the race and give conservatives a strong alternative to Romney.  In any event, Santorum’s victory will finally get his campaign the national attention it deserves.  As Rick Santorum said at the beginning of his speech tonight – “Game On!”
