MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum says he wants to emerge as the "true conservative" of the GOP primary race.
Santorum is locked in a tight race for fourth place with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. It's a dip from last week's Iowa caucuses in which he finished just a handful of votes behind winner Mitt Romney.
Santorum tells supporters that he hopes to continue in the primary race and wants to emerge as the GOP's true conservative candidate.
Santorum says he didn't have much money to spend in New Hampshire but worked hard for his votes and says he will continue to campaign in states that are both good for him and bad for him.
