Says he’ll decide after 2014 midterm elections.

Rick Santorum hasn’t won a full election since 2000 — technically, that was the 20th century — but the former Pennsylvania senator still has ambitions: He’ll probably run for president again.




The Patriot-News reports:

The former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 GOP presidential candidate said he'll decide "sometime next year," and he's not "doing anything inconsistent with running for president."

The 56-year-old was a U.S. senator from 1995 to 2007, losing his 2006 re-election bid to Democrat U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr.

He announced his suspension from the GOP presidential race, the last candidate remaining with nominee Mitt Romney, after having won 11 primaries and caucuses and receiving nearly 4 million votes.

Santorum is touring in support of his new book, Blue Collar Conservatives.
