ICYMI: ABC News - "A Day In The Life Of Once, And Possibly Future, Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum"

Verona, PA - In case you missed it, Michael Falcone of ABC News recently traveled with former presidential candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum as he attended several events throughout the state of Iowa.  Throughout the course of the 18-hour day of travel, Falcone traveled over 430 miles with Santorum in the "Chuck Truck" from a morning breakfast with grassroots activists in Council Bluffs, to an event at a Sioux City church, and the Lyon County Republican dinner in the far northwest corner of Iowa.

ABC News recently joined Rick Santorum, the once and possibly future White House hopeful, for a morning-to-midnight ride-along around Iowa. It may be more than three years before the 2016 election, but earlier this month Santorum was already back in the state that traditionally kicks off the presidential nominating contest, and the one that gave him a belated victory in the caucuses last year. What became immediately apparent is how much he loves this place: the cornfields, the Pizza Ranch buffets, the Norman Rockwell-esque main streets, the county GOP chairs who treat him like a celebrity, the couple in Oskaloosa who let him stay at their home as if he were a member of the family, and the voters who still recognize him and want to shake his hand. I spent 17 hours embedded with the former Pennsylvania senator traveling more than 430 miles around Iowa, following an itinerary that felt a lot like a typical day here during his 2012 presidential campaign. Is Santorum running for president again in 2016? He won't say - at least not until after the 2014 midterm elections have come and gone. But here's a taste of what it's like to spend a day with him. Decide for yourself.
