Santorum Rally Draws Supporters, Opponents, Undecided

TACOMA, Wash. – Several hundred people gathered at the Washington Historical Museum in Tacoma Monday to get a glimpse of Rick Santorum on a campaign swing through the Northwest. In the crowd were supporters, opponents and undecided voters. Azusa Uchikura reports from Tacoma.

Supporters of the former Republican Senator from Pennsylvania cheered loudly. You could also hear Occupy protesters chanting throughout Santorum’s speech. In fact, the police had to escort protesters out during the rally. Then there were those who were just curious about what Santorum had to say. Warren Wood from Tacoma was one.

Wood: “I don’t know who I’m going to vote for yet, but I believe in most of what he believes. These guys, these 99-percenters, they got their rights and he’s all for that, you know. Give the dude extra credits for coming out here to the left coast.”

During his speech, Santorum expressed his opposition to Washington’s new law allowing same-sex couples to marry. Republican voters in Washington hold a non-binding presidential caucus vote March 3rd.
