Santorum to Air Ad Attacking Romney

Rick Santorum will begin this attack ad targeting Mitt Romney tomorrow in South Carolina, reports Time’s Mark Halperin. Sample line: “Why would we ever vote for someone who is just like Obama?” Watch:

UPDATE: “We were very pleased to have Sen. Santorum’s endorsement of Gov. Romney last campaign and his advocacy of Gov. Romney as ‘the candidate who will stand up for the conservative principles that we hold dear,’” e-mails Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul in response to the ad. “As Sen. Santorum said himself, ‘Governor Romney has a deep understanding of the important issues confronting our country today, and he is the clear conservative candidate that can go into the general election with a united Republican party.’”
