Former Senator Rick Santorum will officially announce a bid for the White House the week of June 5, an aide confirmed to The Daily Caller.

Santorum would become the fifth person to officially announce his candidacy, following closely on the heels of Tim Pawlenty’s announcement on Monday, and Herman Cain’s announcement this weekend. Other candidates who have officially announced include Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich.

Santorum will also participate in the first New Hampshire Republican debate on June 13, the aide confirmed. CNN first reported that Santorum would attend the debate.

The former Senator is considered something of a long shot for the nomination, but has been campaigning aggressively in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina. To date he has traveled to the first-in-the-nation caucus state 15 times, to New Hampshire 15 times, and South Carolina 14 times.

  • Richard John Santorum

    Hi gang. I’m ready to make my announcement soon…either on, or before June 5, 2011.

    In a mean time, I just need to remove this frothy mix of lube & fecal matter , a byproduct of an*l s*x.

    WE MUST GET BEHIND THIS CANDIDATE. MANY OTHERS ARE OBFUSCATING THE REAL ISSUES.

    THE REAL IMPORTANT ISSUE HOLDING THOSE ACCOUNTABLE, INCLUDING THE LEFTWING MEDIA WHO PRAISE ADULTERY AND GAY ANAL SEX AS MAINSTREAM AMERICAN VALUE.

      Yes. The real important issue is holding those people accountable who praise gay sex and adultery as mainstream American values. We’ll just put jobs creation, revitalization of our economy, reducing the deficit, orderly withdrawl from 2 wars on the backburner.

      MM, you got your priorities right.

    Actually, Santorum would be the sixth officially declared candidate (assuming no one else gets in before he announces). You forget Gary Johnson. But then again, the Daily Caller isn’t all that well known for its focus on journalistic excellence, let alone fact-checking.

    These picadors will serve to “worry” El Toro .We don’t know ,and more importantly ,the Democrats certainly don’t know -who will emerge to deliver the coupe de gras.This is not going to be the Saturday at the Apollo the opposition is dreaming of.Incidentally,what do you think that Billion $ is for ?And where or from whom did Obama get that kind of money ..in this Depression ? That amount can & will buy a lot of “Yes officer-that’s him ” slime for hurling.So order your Lysol now… by the case.
