Rick Santorum: I Can Attract Democrats

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum responds to Mitt Romney calling a robocall backed by his campaign that calls on Michigan Democrats to vote for him, a "new low." Michigan has an open primary.

"You mean when he runs a robocall of my voice from four years ago saying good things about him, that's not a low moment? And when I run a call basically calling Democrats that are eligible to vote here to vote for us, and encouraging people to come and vote for us, and we talk about our manufacturing plan and what we are going to do to create jobs, it's a very positive robocall. Talking about what we are doing to create jobs in Michigan," Santorum said on FOX News' "Hannity."

"Of course, you know, it's interesting that we criticize me for attracting Democrats because one of the things that Governor Romney's people say is he can't attract Democrats. Well guest What? We will wait and see. I think I can. We have a lot of folks in this state that are looking at our plan and looking at the ideas we have to get the manufacturing sector of this economy of the sector growing again in Michigan and are maybe excited about having Rick Santorum on that ticket," Santorum told FOX News.

Santorum also says Romney is "uniquely unqualified" to run against President Obama because of his health care reform law in Massachusetts. Santorum says Romneycare is completely "identical" to Obamacare.

"Governor Romney is a good man. I have nothing negative to say about Governor Romney as a person. The bottom line is because of his record in Massachusetts on health care, he is uniquely unqualified to take on Barack Obama on a bill that's identical to the bill he supported and to say, 'I'm against it only because it's a federal program instead of a state program,' is not the best way to make the case that government-run health care is a bad idea," Santorum told Sean Hannity.
