Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is hedging his bets on Super Tuesday votes in Ohio, saying that the delegate-heavy Buckeye State presents a challenge, “only because of the fact of the money disadvantage.”

But the former Pennsylvania senator also delivered an upbeat note about the state during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

“We’re running a grass-roots campaign, we’re hanging in there, and we’re going to do very, very well,” he said. “We have the anti-Romney vote, if you will.”

Santorum might be ineligible for several of Ohio’s 63 delegates — and the number could be as high as 18, according to Politico. Also, his name will not appear on the Virginia ballot.

He and his campaign advisers are focusing on North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, he said.

“We’ve done amazingly well for a campaign that, early on, didn’t have a lot of resources, and we’ve gotten on a lot of ballots,” Santorum said.
