On Caucus Morning, Former FNC Analyst Rick Santorum Watched CNN & Got Advice from Rupert Murdoch

On “John King, USA,” last night Iowa Caucus runner-up Rick Santorum said he and his wife were watching CNN’s Election coverage after his speech – early Wednesday morning. The one-time Fox News analyst told King how he and his wife ended their late night: “I’ll admit, we watched CNN until you guys. I was listening to the… your package you had before, Jeanne Moos‘ package. And I was reliving it, because I was watching that late at night and enjoying the coverage. So, yes, we were just sitting there watching it and she eventually just fell asleep watching it. And that was — that was sort of the end of our evening.”

Santorum has a fan in News Corp. Chairman & CEO Rupert Murdoch who, on New Year’s Day Tweeted, “Good to see [S]antorum surging in Iowa. Regardless of policies, all debates showed principles, consistency and humility like no other.” Wednesday morning, Murdoch added, “Well, well! Values DO count. Santorum result pretty amazing. Policy very similar to Reagan. Now start to sound like him.”
