Ron Paul: Santorum an ‘addict of conspiracies’

Ron Paul brushed aside the idea that he and Mitt Romney are in an alliance against Rick Santorum, saying the former Pennsylvania senator is pushing a conspiracy theory. 

Speaking on CNN shortly after polls closed in the Arizona and Michigan primaries, Paul said that Santorum seemed to be an "addict of conspiracies."

"Some people are much more into conspiracies than others," Paul said Tuesday on CNN. 

Santorum accused Paul and Romney of having some kind of alliance — explicit or implicit— against him. Just after a Republican presidential debate in Mesa, Ariz., Santorum floated the idea of some kind of agreement between Romney and Paul. 

"You have to ask Congressman Paul and Gov. Romney what they've got going together," Santorum said just after the debate. "Their commercials look a lot alike, and so do their attacks."
