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."
