Rick Santorum appears to be eyeing the White House again, with the former Pennsylvania senator telling Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg that he may run for president in 2016.

“I’m certainly leaving the door open for that,’’ Santorum revealed on “The Steve Malzberg Show’’ Wednesday afternoon.

“I’m making no commitments at this point, but we’re not doing anything inconsistent with running in 2016.’’

Santorum blamed the Republican Party’s advisors for steering GOP candidates away from the core conservative messages that they should be delivering.

“The same advisors who botched these last two campaigns are now saying, ‘Well, you know, since we can’t win with moderate Republicans, we have to now try to be liberal Republicans to win instead of standing up for the values that made our country great,’’’ he said.

“We have not had a nominee that is ready to go out and articulate a unified vision of what conservatism is, what American’s first principles are about, and why we’re the greatest country in the history of the world. And then we wonder why we don’t win.’’

Santorum added that the endless flip-flopping by advisors is going to stop and the GOP will soon be back on track.

“I assure you that when this next Republican primary comes around for president, we will have a strong, principled conservative nominee because that’s where the Republican Party is across America,’’ he said.
