Santorum Cancels Appearances

Rick Santorum is canceling his campaign appearances in Florida and staying home in Philadelphia to be with this hospitalized 3-year-old daughter, Bella, with a rare genetic disorder. She has been hospitalized at Philadelphia Children’s Hospital, and suffers from Trisomy 18—children with the disorder rarely live past their first birthday. Santorum had been scheduled to appear on NBC’s Meet the Press and attend church in Miami. Campaign spokesperson Hogan Gidley said Saturday that the candidate hopes to return to Florida soon. Santorum is sending his 20-year-old daughter Elizabeth to Sarasota and Punta Gorda for campaign appearances on later Sunday.
