Rick Santorum says when the Super Tuesday votes are counted; he's going to have "at least a couple of gold medals" and a lot more silver ones.
He says he's been able to win in the West, the Midwest and the South, and that he's ready to win "across this country."
Santorum spoke in Steubenville, Ohio, as the vote count from the state's primary remained too close to call. He chalked up Super
Tuesday wins in Tennessee and Oklahoma.
The former Pennsylvania senator said in Ohio and elsewhere, he had overcome "enormous" odds against opponents who outspent him.
Santorum said in order to defeat President Barack Obama, Republicans need someone with a "broad vision" of what America
is. And, he described himself as the only candidate who can take on
Obama over the issue that Santorum says is the most important one
-- health care overhaul. Unlike Mitt Romney, Santorum says he's never supported an individual health insurance mandate, either at
the state or federal level.
