Santorum plans to resume campaign Monday, but not in Florida; cancels Boca Raton stop

by Andrew Abramson | January 29th, 2012

After cancelling two Florida stops on Sunday to care for his ailing 3-year-old daughter, Rick Santorum’s campaign announced that he will be back on the road Monday — but not in Florida.

Santorum last appeared in Florida Friday afternoon before returning home to Pennsylvania for a fundraiser. He also filed his taxes over the weekend. Santorum had planned appearances in Sarasota and Punta Gorda on Sunday and at Boca Raton Synagogue Monday morning. His campaign still held rallies in Sarasota and Punta Gorda, with surrogates, including his adult daughter, Liz and a reality TV family, in his place.

On a conference call Sunday night, Santorum said his daughter Bella had suffered from pneumonia but was recovering.

Santorum, expected to finish third in Florida, had already announced that he wouldn’t stick around for Tuesday’s vote. He said he regretted staying in South Carolina when the votes were counted there because it was a wasted campaign day.

So instead of returning to Florida just to campaign in Boca, Santorum will appear in Missouri and Minnesota on Monday.

He will then travel to Colorado on Tuesday and hold a primary night watch party in Las Vegas Tuesday night.

    Does anyone really believe this Santorum stuff? Santorum, Romney, Gingrich are all frauds. Has anyone heard the Gingrich radio ads? They are ridiculous! They target Romney, as if anyone is even voting for him! Basically, it’s all about Ron Paul and the GOP better wake up or get thrown out of the bed.
