Penn State Grad Santorum Comes From Behind in Iowa

Rick Santorum, a 1980 Penn State graduate and Republican presidential candidate, came in second place in the Iowa caucus yesterday. Santorum had been polling in the low single-digits before a late surge this weekend put him in contention to win the caucus. He would end up finishing in second place by an astounding eight votes behind front-runner Mitt Romney. That’s 30,015 votes to 30,007.

There are many jokes to be made here, but you’ve heard them all before.

Santorum made a campaign stop at Penn State in August before he became a national hero. His Penn State pride was last chronicled in this riveting campaign ad that depicts him playing baseball wearing a Penn State windbreaker at the 23 second mark.

Time to stock up on canned goods my friends.
