Daddy cancels campaign trip to Florida to be with his little girl

29 Jan

The Associated Press (AP) is reporting that Rick Santorum is staying home in Philadelphia to be with this hospitalized daughter and is canceling campaign stops in Florida.

Santorum’s campaign says the former senator will stay in Pennsylvania with 3-year-old Bella, who has a genetic condition known as Trisomy 18. The condition typically proves fatal and Santorum often says his daughter wasn’t expected to live past 12 months.

Spokesman Hogan Gidley says Santorum hopes to return to a campaign schedule soon.

Santorum canceled his appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and a stop at a Miami church.

This is “family values” to me, no hyperbole, no bombastic speeches, just a devoted daddy staying with his little girl; thoughts and prayers for the Santorum’s and for little Bella.
