Santorum searches for own gusher in oil country
GOP hopeful Santorum searches for gusher of votes, money in campaign stops across oil country
By The Associated Press

TIOGA, N.D. (AP) ' Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has been spending a lot of time in oil country lately, prospecting for GOP votes ' and money.

He tromped through an oil field in the frigid northwest corner of booming North Dakota on Wednesday to assure industry officials he had their backs.

In the past week, Santorum also spoke of peeling back regulations in Oklahoma and Texas. In all three fuel-rich states, he spoke industry language meant to forge common bond with his hosts.



He goes after the Obama administration for slowing consideration of a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline and not embracing hydraulic fracturing.

The message resonates with local Republican audiences as well as industry executives capable of writing big campaign checks. And if there's one thing Santorum's campaign sorely needs these days, it's money.
