SPOKANE-- Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum returned to the Inland Northwest Thursday.
Santorum stopped by the New Life Assembly Church to stir up support ahead of this weekend’s caucus in Washington.
He arrived about an hour late. Campaign sources say his plane touched down at Spokane International Airport around 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
Santorum supporters lined up outside the church about two hours ahead of the rally to get a spot in the front row.
Santorum got a huge round of applause when he spoke about his desire to repeal Obama-care. He didn’t hold back on criticizing his main opponent, Mitt Romney, saying he’s just too moderate for America.
Washington doesn’t have a presidential primary this year, so GOP candidates like Santorum are doing everything they can to gain support for the upcoming caucuses.
Santorum is now on his way to the Tri-Cities for another rally. He stopped in Coeur d’Alene in February.
