In Late Fundraising Letter Santorum Says Romney as Nominee “Truly Frightens Me”


Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney spar over Santorum’s earmark comments at a CNN debate. (TPM)

A late arriving Rick Santorum fundraising letter told support suporters,
“It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee.”
The Ticket reported:

A late Rick Santorum speaks at the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum during the …e-arriving Rick Santorum fund-raising letter to Iowa voters is causing a stir for its harshly worded attack on presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The letter, first reported on and reprinted in full by the Des Moines Register, arrived in Iowa mailboxes on Monday, nearly a week after the former Pennsylvania senator suspended his campaign.

“It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee,” reads the undated letter, which is signed by Santorum and paid for by his campaign.

It goes on to repeat some of Santorum’s most frequent attacks on Romney, calling him “a Massachusetts moderate,” and suggesting that “Republicans and conservatives will be crippled by a nominee who presents zero contrast with Barack Obama on the major issues of this election.”

Of course this wasn’t the first time Rick bashed Mitt. In fact he’s said much worse.
