Santorum searching for conservative base in N.H.

Rick Santorum continues to court conservative activists in New Hampshire.

The former Pennsylvania senator will speak at a Nashua lunch Tuesday hosted by broadcaster Jennifer Horn, who ran unsuccessfully against Rep. Charlie Bass (R-N.H.) in last year's 2nd district GOP primary.

During the campaign, Horn was a regular attendee at Tea Party rallies throughout the state. But she was unable to turn her popularity with activists into campaign donations and was subsequently bested by the better-known Bass.

Santorum, who is mulling a presidential run, has made it a point to reach out to conservatives in New Hampshire, regardless of their standing within the state GOP.

He's also attended a house party hosted by former senatorial hopeful Ovide Lamontagne (R).
