Rick Santorum for President in 2016? HUH! by David Webb 6 Feb 2013 post a comment Share This: Rick Santorum tells Greta Van Susteren he's talking about running in 2016. Given his poor showing in the 2012 primaries, does anyone think he's a viable candidate? Social conservatives did not even vote for him in sufficient numbers. Staying in the race doesn't mean you have a chance. Just means you're still running.
