Anti-Urban Presidential Candidate Now Anti-Suburban, Too

After bemoaning cities as the domain of Democrats, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum tries to appeal to his party by extending his criticism to suburbs, calling them "too close to cities."

Santorum has been trying to make the case that he appeals to the true Republicans of the country – those who live outside of Democrat-dominated cities. But after making anti-urban remarks at a recent campaign stop, Santorum suffered attacks from his own supporters for not going far enough in his attack on cities.

As a result, Santorum took to the stage recently in rural Bloomfield, Kentucky, to make his case stronger.

"You good people are the Republicans I want on my side," Santorum told the small crowd in this town of 900. "I don't want the city vote. I'll let my so-called Republican competition take it. I don't even want the suburban voters. They're too close to cities. Those people clearly are not the real Republicans."
