Santorum press sec. on possible Michigan win, robo-calls, Catholic vote

Alice Stewart, national press secretary for the Rick Santorum campaign, talks with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien about Michigan primary, robo-calls and Catholic vote.

Responding to O’Brien’s question about whether or not the robo-calls were a mistake, Stewart says, “Absolutely not. We'll see how the next states play out, but the key is we've always said we need to appeal to conservatives and also Reagan Democrats.”

On the delegate count in Michigan primary, she states, “And there is a good chance we will tie with him in the delegate count, and quite possibly, even surpass him in the delegate count, and that's key. And if that happens, we are clearly the winner in this case. Rick appealed to them as a conservative saying my conservative views and values will help you as a Reagan Democrat.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
