RICK SANTORUM PLAYS MIND GAMES WITH POLITICO‘S CORRECTIONS DESK – “Rick Santorum on Thursday afternoon slipped away from the campaign trail to speak to a fundraiser for a supportive super PAC, despite denying previous reports that he planned to do so. The fundraiser drew between 20 and 25 donors to a gated country club in Dallas where Santorum spoke for about half-an-hour about the previous evening’s debate and the upcoming primaries, then chatted briefly with supporters, according to a source familiar with the event. It’s unclear how much money the event raised for the super PAC, which is called the Red, White and Blue Fund. But Santorum’s presence could help significantly with its fundraising going forward because it marks the first time that the candidate has bestowed something of a blessing on the super PAC…But Santorum’s campaign initially demanded a correction to a Politico report last week revealing his plans to speak at Thursday’s super PAC fundraiser. And Santorum himself after Wednesday’s debate appeared to deny he would be appearing at an event for the Red, White and Blue Fund, telling a Yahoo News reporter ‘I’m doing some fundraising. I’m not doing a Super PAC event.'” [Politico]
Ha ha, lying.
