A Good Man

I think the thing I found most heartbreaking on Election Night was the loss of Rick Santorum. He is a good man. A good Senator. A good Catholic.

From Rick Santorum's Campaign Blog: Thank You

First, let me thank you for your support and your faith throughout this campaign and beyond.

I am so blessed to be surrounded by not only my loving family but so many wonderful supporters committed to the future of our state and our nation.

Although the results were not what we wanted, we couldn't be prouder of our campaign and the job we've done for you and your families. You should be proud too for the hours you spent making calls, knocking on doors, talking to family, friends and neighbors and all the other time you spent thinking about and working on our re-election.

We're humbled by your devotion and your faith.

My wife Karen and I thank God for the opportunity to have served our nation and the greatest state in the nation. We've used that gift to try and do good for Pennsylvania, our nation and our world.

We stood up for the family, for the most vulnerable from the beginning of life to the end of life, and we didn't forget those in between. We worked for those who are disadvantaged in this country and those who are suffering around the world.

We worked for the greater prosperity of you and your family.
[. . .]
My time as your U.S. Senator is coming to a close, but I will continue to work for you, and for all of the wonderful people we have met and worked for over the years.

I can't thank you enough.

God Bless.
(Emphasis is Sen. Santorum's)

God bless you and your family, Senator Santorum. Thank you for your service to our country.
