Santorum Launches Conservative Advocacy Group

Former Presidential candidate Rick Santorum announced on Fox News Friday that he will be launching a new advocacy group dubbed “Patriot Voices.”

The former Pennsylvania Senator explained that the conservative group will focus on ensuring Republicans “get rid of the scourge that has been the bane of the economy and our country, which is Barack Obama.”

In addition, Santorum said, the organization will also endorse candidates and hold others accountable.

Santorum, who was written off for much of the early campaign, briefly threatened to upset the Romney campaign after winning a series of primaries and giving the former Massachusetts Governor a run for his money in his native Michigan.

Santorum bowed out of the race in April and endorsed Mitt Romney via a late night email to supporters the following month.
