Rush Limbaugh front and center in pro-Santorum mailer



CNN

Rush Limbaugh is splashed across the latest Michigan mail piece from “Red, White and Blue Fund,” a super PAC supporting Rick Santorum’s presidential bid.

“Rick Santorum is ‘the last conservative standing’,” the mailer blares, quoting Limbaugh from one of his radio broadcasts earlier this month.

“If you’re looking for a conservative who is the least corrupted, who has the least number of periods of wandering off the reservation, if you’re looking for a conservative who’s never sat down with Nancy Pelosi on the couch for any reason, you get Rick Santorum,” Limbaugh told his listeners on February 8. “And people know this.”

Limbaugh has not endorsed a candidate in the GOP presidential race, but the influential talker has been critical of Mitt Romney, questioning Romney’s decision to call himself “severely conservative” and finding fault with the rollout of his tax reform plan last week.

The two-sided mailer, designed to fight back against Romney’s claims that Santorum is less conservative than he seems, also cites Santorum’s endorsements from conservative leaders James Dobson and Gary Bauer.

Glenn Beck, who once called Santorum “the next George Washington,” is also featured on the mailer, which was provided to CNN by a Michigan voter who received it.
