Santorum Wrongly Claims He’s Won Every State In The Midwest

Ohio? Michigan? posted on

HAZELWOOD, Mo. — Rick Santorum is confused about geography.

In a speech to caucus-goers, Santorum said he’s won every state in the midwest. The problem — he lost Ohio and Michigan, designated by the U.S. Census Bureau as part of the Midwest region.

“When you leave here, go home, sign up on our website, start calling folks in Illinois,” Santorum said. “Because we’ve got a big election coming up in a couple days in Illinois. Please help us out there. If you’ve got friends over there, make sure they get out and help us out. Let’s turn – this (sic) of Midwest, turn this election around. If you look at the Midwest, all of the Midwest is one color. It’s our color. We’ve won every state in the Midwest. Let’s keep that going in the state of Illinois, obviously we need to keep that going here with the delegate selection here in Missouri. Please help us out today…”

“As usual, Senator Santorum has no regard for the facts,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told BuzzFeed. “Mitt Romney beat him in both Michigan and Ohio because of his strong, pro-jobs message – and despite Senator Santorum’s desperate attempt to get Obama supporters to throw the primary his way.”
