Romney ‘Worst Republican’ Against Obama

Rick Santorum upped his attacks on Mitt Romney at a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Sunday night, calling his opponent the “worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.” He then offered a list of areas where Romney contrasted badly to Obama. When asked about the comment, Santorum explained, “I said he was the worst Republican to run on the issue of Obamacare,” and suggested that the media was “distorting my words.” The candidate faced criticism from Republicans last week after suggesting that Romney was too similar to Obama.
