700 WLW radio talk show host Scott Sloan put the pressure on Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum today as the Ohio primary draws near. Super Tuesday is next week on March 6th, and Ohio is by far the most competitive state of the bunch, with the winners mostly predicted in the other states already.

 

Radio Host Challenges Santorum

Trying to out compete Mitt Romney after losing both contests this week in Michigan and Arizona, former Senator Rick Santorum took to the radio air waves to send his message. After calling in near 15 minutes late than the scheduled time, and  leaving voters and Scott Sloan waiting, perhaps their minds have drifted to  other candidates like Ron Paul, who is running on the values of freedom and prosperity.

 

The economy is by far the largest issue in most American’s minds at the moment, but for the past several weeks big news have been made out of Rick Santorum’s stance on birth control. Santorum has been popular amongst social conservatives, despite  his record of endorsing candidates to the contrary, and the birth control issue has put a lot  of focus on his social views.

 

After Senator Rick Santorum and Scott Sloan were going back and forth on the birth control stance, an issue that has already angered large numbers of women, the phone lines went dead. Adding to the controversy, Rick Santorum did not call back.

 

Sloan challenged that Senator Santorum originally brought the issue to the front of the election stage to drive out the far right voters and to bring in money from those support groups, but Mister Santorum held strong saying his primary concern is on the economy.

 

Despite blasting Rick Santorum for focusing on such an issue instead of issues the tri-state of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, Sloan’s primary audience, he went on to say that it is  not his job to try to get a certain candidate elected or not,  but rather to ask the tough questions about housing, jobs, gas prices and the overall economy, while not  letting basically petty social issues that gets people mad get in the way.

 

He was also quick to dismiss the notion that the media is to blame for the rise of social issue discussions on the campaign trail, instead focusing on how Santorum has handled his message and veered off from the economic’s  issues that most Americans and Cincinnati business deal leaders care about  more.
