Rick Santorum, the defending champion of the Iowa caucuses, found himself with two whole people showing up at a stop in Iowa on Monday.

Santorum stopped by Sam’s Soda and Sandwiches in Carroll, Iowa, only to be met with three of his own staffers, two Democratic campaign trackers, a waitress, two diners and one CNN reporter.

Aside from those involved in his campaign, trackers included, only two diners made an appearance and at least one of them, wasn’t sure if she would vote for him.

According to WTAE, Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, took it in stride and spent about an hour drinking a chocolate milkshake and chatting with the two diners.

Santorum said it’s about quality personal interactions with voters at campaign stops.

“The key in those smaller counties is to find one or two really good volunteers,” Santorum said. “(Then they) tell everybody in the county that you came, and that you were available to speak to them and you sat for an hour and listened to the concerns of the people from that county.”

WTAE reports:

One of the diners, a woman who identified herself as Kay, sat next to Santorum at the soda counter and told him she couldn’t remember if she voted for him or Michele Bachmann last time. Afterwards, she said she was impressed by Santorum, but it was too early to decide who she would caucus for.

But Santorum’s efforts were rewarded on another front. The former senator spoke with a young man who had supported his 2012 candidacy, but this time came to Sam’s to take on a more active campaign role. Santorum declared him his new county chair.

So that one guy can be county chair to that undecided voter.



“It’s a lot of miles and it’s a lot of one-on-one, small group conversations to get people interested in the vision that you have, and buy into that vision … and be willing to make a difference,” Santorum said.

What an unremarkable campaign.
