Santorum Talks 2016, Jobs, Immigration And Wall Street

posted by Leave a Comment

Rick Santorum says I was standing on something that allowed me to win 11 states, tie two states in delegates out of the 30 states I competed in when I was being outspent four, five, six to one. This message must have some resonance.The Daily Caller sat down for an interview with Sen. Rick Santorum, the man who ran close behind Gov. Mitt Romney in the GOP’s 2012 nomination.

Santorum is preparing for another run, and he’s practicing his pitch to middle-income voters, diplomatically calling for a “pause” in the flow of immigrant workers, keeping his distance from the GOP’s financial backers on Wall Street, and running a movie studio, EchoLight Studios.

 Q. Can a focus on labor, wages and jobs help you win in 2016?

It’s the only ticket for us to be successful in 2016. If conservatives and Republicans don’t begin to reach working Americans, across the board — black, brown, white — and have a message of hope, opportunity, the ability for them to be able to rise in society, provide for their families, and create opportunities for themselves, then I think the numbers are just solidly against us.

We need a transformation of the party to reflect where the party is. This is really the interesting part here — if you look at who votes for us these days, it is less and less the corporate world, it is less and less the suburban wealthy voters and its more and more average America — working Americans in the middle of the economic sphere, and they want to vote for us in even bigger numbers.

I would even go into not just from the middle, but broadening out on other sides of the middle, including lower middle-income Americans. They want to vote for us because they have now seen the devastation of government intrusion and involvement in their lives. They’ve seen the devastation of government mandates in harming their ability to get good wages and good benefits and being able to provide for their families. They don’t want to be on food stamps. They don’t want to be on housing assistance.

They don’t see Republicans and conservatives as giving a damn about them. We don’t talk about them, our policies aren’t oriented to them. It’s all “You didn’t build that,” it’s all focused on the small business guy, it’s focused on the entrepreneur, its focused on the business person and what we have to do to create jobs.
