Republican Presidential Candidate 2008

Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum (46) is a good GOP presidential candidate in 2008. He is a strong republican in Pennsylvania (blue state 2004) and is a true conservative. He's up for reelection in 2006 but I think he will easily be reelected. Sen. Santorum is pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro-tax cuts, voted yes on prohibiting same-sex marriage, voted yes on limiting death penalty appeals, voted no on expanding hate crimes to include sexual orientation, voted yes on limit welfare for immigrants. Vote to create a national registry containing names of U.S. workers who want to perform temporary or seasonal agricultural work and voted yes for visas for SKILLED workers.

The Senator's legislation fought to end partial-birth abortion and won congressional approval and was signed by President Bush. Senator Santorum successfully ushered the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act through the Senate and House, and his bill to recognize the basic rights of all children born alive was signed into law. Sen. Santorum can deliver Pennsylvania with its 23 electoral votes. Hopefully he does good in 2006 and run for the White House in 2008. He's the only Conservative hope I see, Senator Bill Frist is dull, I don't trust Senator John McCain, Rudy Giuliani is not Conservative and I am sorry to say but Condoleezza Rice can't win.
