Santorum Tells Kansas Crowds Saturday Caucuses Matter

At a campaign stop in Lenexa on Wednesday,  Senator Rick Santorum said calls for Newt Gingrich to leave the race were not coming from him, and if they generated from his campaign, he didn't endorse them. 

Santorum did say, however, that the Saturday caucuses in Kansas were more important than ever on the heels of Super Tuesday.

The 3-state win, and a razor -thin loss to front runner Mitt Romney, led Santorum to tell the excited crowd that he was pleased with his strategy. "We're winning," he said. "And where we’re not winning, we’re coming in second.”

Santorum disassociated himself from Republicans, or campaign insiders, who have said Newt Gingrich was splitting the conservative vote, and should drop out after his poor Super Tuesday showing. Gingrich carried only his home state of Georgia.

When asked about a statement from the Romney camp that it would take “act of God" for the other candidates to catch up now, Santorum said it was just more negative rhetoric by  the Romney camp.

“What won’t they resort to to try to bully their way through this race?" Santorum asked. "If the Governor thinks he is now ordained by God to win, let's have it out.”

Governor Romney currently is ahead of Santorum in the delegate count by about two to one.

Kansas will send  40 delegates to the Republican convention this summer.
