It was standing room only at Grace Church as hundreds came out to hear Rick Santorum speak just days before Tuesday’s primary. Voters like Jerry Wilson are still trying to decide which way to cast their vote.
“I’m just here tonight to hear what Rick has to say, I’m trying to compare all of the candidates and I’ve been to several of the meetings and I haven’t decided yet,” says Wilson.
The former Pennsylvania senator told FOX23 exclusively why he chose to come back a second time to Tulsa.
“Well, you know we’ve had such great support here and we just want to encourage people and thank them and the bigger the win, the bigger the delegate counts,” Santorum says.
Taking shots at President Obama, he told the crowd the current President tramples the constitution, almost mocking it. Santorum stuck to the backbone of his campaign with faith, family values, energy and spoke about taxes.
“Just look at my record, 16 years in congress and plenty of opportunity to increase taxes and not one vote ever,” says Santorum.
Teresa DeLarzelere says it's Santorum’s faith that stands out to her.
“I like the fact that he’s a Christian and he’s a strong leader and got a great tax plan,” says DeLarzelere.
We did some digging into Oklahoma’s giving to the Santorum campaign.
According to the website www.transparencydata.com, from January 4th, 2012 to January 31st, Oklahoma individuals gave a total of $22,350. In his speech, Santorum talked about the fact that 130,000 donors gave in the month of February overall across the U.S.
“I think we’ll be okay here in Oklahoma, I think the conservatives here will make the right choice,” says Santorum supporter, Jared Martin.
Santorum also spoke about the controversial Personhood Bill.
“Some say they believe life begins at conception, but I know life begins at conception,” says Santorum.
Oklahoma is one of ten states with a primary or caucus on Super Tuesday.
