    Oh, Rick Santorum, you left us too soon. The former Pennsylvania senator and obdurate social conservative may be absent from public life, but he's on track to receive a bigger honor: going down as a biblical prophet, not unlike Micah. During his ill fated presidential campaign, Santorum was asked by a university student to clarify past comments likening homosexuality to bestiality and incest.  Flustered, he replied, "If the Supreme Court gives the right to consensual sexual activity, then you have the right to incest, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to all sorts of – you...

    Several influential House conservatives are privately plotting ways to use the legislative calendar this fall to push their hard-line agenda including quiet discussions about possibly mounting a leadership challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan. The group has gone so far as to float the idea of recruiting former House speaker Newt Gingrich or former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum as potential replacements for Ryan (R-Wis.) should there be a rebellion. The Constitution does not require that an elected member of the House serve as speaker. While the chances that a non-House member could mount a credible threat to Ryan...

    Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, and Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., have begun to examine potential replacements for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. in the event conservatives attempt to oust him from his leadership role, according to a report Wednesday.

    Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Monday that he is working with a broad coalition of Republicans in both the House and Senate, along with several governors, to develop a new effort to repeal Obamacare. The effort, which comes after serious tumult with prior legislation in both the House and the Senate, would devolve power over healthcare away from the federal government and back to the states. It would allow each of the 50 states to individually craft their own plans, and would mirror the effort led by Santorum in the mid-1990s which...

    As White House lawyers begin researching impeachment procedures, former senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Friday night the GOP is nowhere near supporting such a move, but warned President Donald Trump that "this can't continue for a whole lot longer." A person briefed on the matter told CNN that lawyers in the White House counsel's office have consulted experts in impeachment during the past week and have begun collecting information on how such proceedings would work. People briefed on the legal discussions also revealed that White House officials believe the President has the backing of Republican allies in...

    President-elect Donald Trump will meet with two former GOP Primary rivals, Carly Fiorina and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, on Monday in New York City at Trump Tower, according to his transition team. Fiorina, who briefly ran as Sen. Ted Cruzs (R-TX) running mate during the Primary, has been a Trump critic, suggesting weeks before the election that he should step aside and allow his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, to head the Republican ticket after the Washington Post published audio of Trump making lewd remarks about women with Billy Bush. Donald Trump does not represent me or my...

    Four years before Hillary Clinton became the first woman to mathematically capture a major U.S. political partys presidential nomination, a staff member on Rick Santorums 2012 presidential campaign posed a question in an email that shocked many people: Is it Gods highest desire, that is, his biblically expressed will, to have a woman rule the institutions of the family, the church, and the state? Gods will or not, in 2016, its all that much closer to coming to fruition. Clinton is poised to be nominated for president by the Democratic Party next week. And so religious hard-liners of all...

    Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) is throwing his support behind controversial presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "I'm 100 percent," Santorum said Tuesday during an interview on Fox News's "On The Record," when asked if he was supporting or endorsing Trump. "That's endorse." Santorum, who backed Marco Rubio after dropping out of the race himself in February, said he spoke with Trump more than a week ago and he said the businessman asked for his support. The former Senator indicated a top reason for endorsing Trump is the vacant Supreme Court seat. Santorum said he made a couple suggestions...

    Rick Santorum announced Tuesday that he is suspending his presidential campaign.. Santorum is currently second in the delegate race, but he would have to win upwards of three-fourths of the remaining delegates in order to secure the nomination. Instead, he seemed to be hoping that Romney would fall short of the delegate threshold and that he could snatch the nomination at the Republican National Convention in August..

    John Kasich's campaign on Friday flatly rejected Marco Rubio's suggestion that they swap voters in each others home states in order to ensure Rubio wins in Florida, and Kasich wins in Ohio. "We were going to win in OH without his help, just as he's going to lose in Florida without ours," Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said in a tweet. By Nicole Duran 03/11/16 3:44 PM Rubio and his campaign called on his supporters in Ohio to vote for Gov. Kasich, in an effort to block Donald Trump from winning the Republican nomination.

    Here's why Santorum thinks Cruz is falling behind in the race. In an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress at the Conservative Political Action Conference, former senator Rick Santorum said he believes that Sen. Ted Cruz isn't doing better in the GOP presidential primary and caucus races because Cruz "is not the kind of conservative that Mike Huckabee and I were." Santorum says he believes Cruz isn't conservative enough when it comes to social issues. This, even though Cruz has loudly promoted anti-LGBT religious liberty laws, spoken at a virulently anti-gay conference last fall (which Rachel Maddow dubbed a "'kill...

    Washington (CNN)Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz drew fire from a new quarter Tuesday, when the Chinese government tore into the Texas senator for a bill he pushed through the Senate last week. The legislation would rename a part of the street across from China's embassy after a pro-democracy activist jailed by Beijing. It would effectively change the embassy's address to "1 Liu Xiaobo Plaza," after the Nobel Peace Prize winner serving an 11-year sentence in part for publishing an anti-Communist manifesto calling for political freedoms. China's Foreign Ministry blasted Cruz's bill as a "political farce" and warned that it would...

First, Trump retweeted his social media director's link to a blog post about former Republican Senator Tom Coburn on Texas Sen. Cruz. "Unreal! Highly respected Senator Tom Coburn- said this about Cruz," the business mogul tweeted, attributing the quote "He is, without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in DC," to Coburn. Trump then repeated the quote during a rally in North Augusta, South Carolina. "Did you see the Senator from Oklahoma just came out with a statement? One of the most incredible statements ......
