Video: Rick Santorum Says "We Need a Jesus Candidate"

Speaking to a Tea Party group at Windham High School in New Hampshire on Thursday, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum told the crowd that during a radio interview earlier in the week, a man had phoned in to tell him, “We don’t need a Jesus candidate; we need an economic candidate.”

“My answer to that was, we always need a Jesus candidate,” Santorum said (video below).

“I don’t mean that in saying we need a Jesus candidate, someone who’s a Christian, but we need someone who believes in something more than themselves, some higher power, some god,” he added. “When we say, ‘God bless America,’ do we mean it or do we just say it?”
