Another Clear Indication That It’s Time for Rick Santorum to Go

An Iowa precinct captain for Rick Santorum let an unexpected cat out of the bag that does not shed a positive light on the former Pennsylvania Senator’s presidential campaign.

While on MSNBC with Chris Haynes, one of the Republican presidential candidate’s precinct captains pulled out his phone to show Haynes the final tally of votes. That’s when something was accidentally revealed that does not bode well for the future of Santorum’s campaign.

After the precinct captain showed him the final tally sheet, Haynes noticed that there was an ‘X’ by Santorum’s name, an indication that he didn’t receive one vote. Since this was the tally sheet from the caucus where Santorum’s precinct captain voted, it made for a very awkward moment as Haynes asked, “Uh, Santorum, there’s an ‘X’ next to him. What? You didn’t vote for him?”

The Santorum precinct captain responded, “As I was writing down, my pen ran out of ink, and I was like ‘I can’t just ask somebody for a new pen while I’m doing this.”

Unfortunately for Santorum, who won the 2012 GOP Iowa Caucus, this exchange was all caught on film and tweeted.

Will this cause Santorum, who received one-percent of the vote in the Iowa caucus, to reevaluate his campaign and possibly follow in the footsteps of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee who suspended his campaign last night?
