Santorum campaigns in Pa., hits the lanes

“We are going to win Pennsylvania and we need to win Pennsylvania,” said Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.A month ago, it looked as if winning the Keystone state’s primary might just be a straight shot for him.Now, it’s looking like it may be more akin to picking up a seven-10 split.

The former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator hit the lanes at a Cumberland County bowling alley to practice.And it’s not his first time.

More like “eight times in the last ten days,” said Brian Nutt, the Pennsylvania campaign director. Santorum concedes Mitt Romney was able to get very key endorsements in Wisconsin earlier this week, and bring a lot of money to that race.”And yet, he only won by just a handful of points.  I mean, to me the story is, why is he not just blowing the doors off this thing?” asked Santorum. And with that, he bowled two rounds scoring 150 and 145.
