A Good Man Stepped Down Yesterday, Presidential Candidate Rick Santorium

Rick Santorium conducted a strong campaign, considering he was running with little funds compared to other candidates.

He also stayed firm with his conservative beliefs without moving to the middle in order to gain more backing.

I met Santorium and some of his children in Iowa at Bruce Rastetter's get-together and they were a very close and cordial family.

His daughters and one of their sons said, "We got to come with dad this time," when I asked where the rest of the family was. "We take turns." Santorium talked to many people that day, spending most of his time listening to their concerns rather than making his views heard.

Visiting with him and listening to his campaign, I could see how passionate Santorium is about America and keeping the Constitution in tack.

Santorium kept true to his faith, he doesn't just talk it.

The emblem, "In God We Trust" that our forefathers had etched on our coins, was Santorium's strength, and it was what draws him close to his family and his country.

With his family by his side, a good man stepped down as America has moved too much in the middle. My prayer is that he stirred enough people that "faith, family, and freedom" move closer to the forefront.
