    Add former Sen. Rick Santorum to the list of potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates.


    POLITICO has learned Santorum will visit first-in-the-nation Iowa this fall for a series of appearances before the sort of conservative activists who dominate the state GOP’s key presidential caucuses.


    The Pennsylvanian, who lost his 2006 reelection bid, will visit Iowa on October 1, appearing on a Des Moines radio talk show and speaking to a luncheon and workshop of Iowa’s Right to Life group before heading east to Dubuque, where he’ll headline a fundraiser for the conservative America’s Future Fund PAC and then speak about the future of the GOP to a public audience in the Mississippi River city.

    Bad news for Palin and Huckabee if this amounts to anything. Another social rightwing extremist further splitting the Christian fundie vote.

    More help for Romney.

    Hint: Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, and John McCain took pride in getting along with Democrats.

    Rick Santorum makes Huckabee look like a rockstar and Palin seem like a decent candidate. I think if Rick Santorum ran against Obama he'd lose 40+ states for sure, maybe 45. He'd have no chance in Pennsylvania.

    Oklahoma and Utah for sure, don't know where else, probably Idaho, maybe Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota, North Dakota or Alaska.
