"Rick and his wife Karen have taken their daughter Bella to the hospital," Santorum Communications Director Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

First Read - Santorum's ailing daughter taken to hospital I really hope she gets better.

Hopefully, all Americans will get that equal opportunity. We all agree on this, right?
