“Can Rick Santorum Catch Fire?”

Rick Santorum Speaking - H 2012

That’s the question Politico’s Roger Simon poses.

A first or second place tonight makes the former Pennsylvania senator the not-Romney in New Hampshire, and it won’t take a lot of money given the earned media to compete there or in South Carolina. Three strong finishes would give RickSantorum.com the time to build a bank account for Florida via thousands of small donors.

Money won’t decide the GOP nomination. As always, the GOP primary electorate will nominate the most conservative candidate it collectively concludes can win in November. This favors previous candidates like Romney (see below) but it factors in ideas, and a Romney-Santorum duel like the Ford-Reagan campaign of 1976 is very possible over many states if Santorum combines a strong showing tonight with another one next week.
