Santorum tells Alabama Republicans he's the true conservative in the presidential race
PELHAM, Ala. (AP) ' Former Sen. Rick Santorum says he's the true conservative presidential candidate for Alabama.
Santorum spoke to supporters in a crowded banquet room in the Birmingham suburb of Pelham on Thursday afternoon.
Portraying himself as both a social and economic conservative, Santorum says that liberty is the top issue in the election. He says the GOP's goal is defeating President Barack Obama in November, and that he's the candidate to do it because his record is in clear contrast to Obama's.
Santorum is vying with Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul in Alabama's primary next Tuesday.
