Rick Santorum, former senator from Pennsylvania, announced that he is running for President today. That brings the list of declared GOP presidential candidates to seven, with former New York Governor George Pataki expected to officially throw his hat into the ring tomorrow.
Kedron Bardwell of Simpson College says that if any of those candidates want to win, they’re going to have to energize younger voters. “Young people are looking for someone new. From what I’ve heard around campus here, I don’t see a Rick Santorum or a Mike Huckabee catching fire in Iowa,” he says.
