And a race for the Republican presidential nomination heads out tomorrow for Alabama and Mississippi primaries in the polls and these two important states show a very close race.
Between -- candidates joining me now from the campaign trail.
On the eve of tomorrow's big vote presidential candidate Rick Santorum from Montgomery Alabama you know my wife my mother long.
Lived there are ways to go there all time say hi to everybody.
Up from Alabama roll -- While I have to crap but I can't let everybody thought I thought let everybody from everything -- -- you.
Where -- guys aren't the poll shows very close.
Between you and speaker Gingrich and these two states what do you predict for tomorrow.
Well you know we were feeling really good about about Alabama -- -- -- we feel like we've you know we've been taken up the momentum here.
I would make a lot of phone calls we've we picked up some key endorsements coming down the stretch here and you know it's it's going to be -- but I think the people of Alabama Mississippi your figured out.
That they want a conservative challenger in the general election we gotta get this race still one on one and and since Nevada since the that the first four primaries are over.
We've been to finish first or second and every single state congress -- Gingrich speaker Tony finished first in his home state hasn't finished -- third anywhere else.
And now I think it's it's you know with our big -- -- Kansas on Saturday we got over 50% of the vote.
One of the most conservative states in the and they and the country.
I'm hopeful that that little wind at our back we'll give us the victories here in.
In Alabama Mississippi.
And by the by the way when I was down Alabama broadcasting.
At an earlier -- and Huntsville Alabama.
I had a tough time with the -- to realize that they you know I didn't grow.
As well as a kid from Long Island.
You know while another did we already got me and I swear they have and a lot of cheese and butter I found the key.
That we had we had diets and -- this morning down in in Biloxi at that apple writes on the buy you and it was possible.
And by the way can't be like John Kerry ordering a cheese steak when -- him out and hope not and I didn't order I didn't order -- when I was.
Let me ask you about and I I don't even like asking you but this is right now become really important part of the campaign.
And the president's -- -- in this country repeatedly about the tone and civility etc.
Any lectures everybody but he takes a million dollars from Bill Maher.
The president we played early in the program says you can't attack.
Children a presidential candidates or or people politics which I agree way.
But yet Bill Maher the guy took the million dollars from attacked you I don't wanna -- this -- and get your reaction.
It's no coincidence that the type of tree which god for -- at a -- beating from.
Was the tree of knowledge Rick Santorum and home schools his children.
Because he does not want that eating that.
He wants them locked up in the Christian madrassa that is the family living room.
Not out in public where they could be infected by the virus -- reason.
I and they got worse and that Christian madrassa all of this.
What do you think about the president taken a million dollars is -- taken a million dollars from Bill Maher they have said they will not return the money but it yet the lecture in the rest of the country garden on.
Discourse and civility.
It's it's an absolute double standard I mean there's another there's -- an interview that went by over the last week I wasn't asked the question about Rush Limbaugh.
And yet repeatedly these could these these folks on the left whether it's tomorrow or Letterman are you or you name it.
They're out there trashing anybody who stands up for Christian conservative values anybody who dares to actually teach their children faith in their home.
All of a sudden if you're instilling faith and teach you about god and your home your madrassa according to these folks and as -- reason.
It doesn't take place and Omar are children -- out reason him my twelve year old -- reason Bill Maher when it comes to understanding.
You know what you know well -- -- logic work.
Because he is completely illogical they have abandoned not just faith and Bill Maher but they've abandoned reason -- they are pure emotion.
They have absolutely nothing to offer this country and yet they are they a dispute vitriol.
Toward anybody who stands up and argues both faith and reason what I've done throughout the course of my public career.
I I I I look forward.
To debating when I was in the senate all of those folks on the left you saw them John.
I remember Barbara Boxer we would be debating bills and by the end of that debate should be out the door she would want to debate with us why because we were the party of reason.
There that they made the left is just a -- I'm disputed a bunch of emotion and trying to incite people.
To try to cast your town and we're gonna stand up for the things that made this country great and that's science reason and faith all of those have -- have a role in the public square.
All right are you prepared to take this nomination to the convention.
-- -- lack we need to nominate a conservative shot we don't nominate conservatives.
You've seen it.
We nominated I'm John McCain we nominated Bob Dole not -- Jerry four when bush ran for reelection back in 92.
After having raise taxes we lost every one of those races.
It's I understand why the media wants Romney.
Because they know that Obama can beat Romney we need to nominate a Reagan conservative someone can create the clear contrast we do that that's why we're gonna stick this out and we're gonna win.
All right senator Santorum all the best our friends.
