Rick Santorum offered a defense to the idea that he can't possibly beat Mitt Romney because of the former Massachusetts governor's money and campaign organization.

"He had the organization and the money yesterday, too, and it didn’t work out so well for him, did it?" Santorum said Wednesday in Texas, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Santorum has largely run his campaign on a shoestring budget. Despite winning a number of presidential contests — in Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri — he hasn't seen a huge surge in donations to his campaign.

In Iowa, Santorum stuck to a traditional retail politics campaign, visiting every county in the state. The strategy paid off, as Santorum won the Hawkeye State by a razor-thin margin.

After his wins in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri, Santorum reported raising $250,000 in one night.
