Santorum Says He Wasn't 'Ripped Off' in Iowa

Rick Santorum said that he "wasn't ripped off in Iowa," even though he was told on the night of the 2012 GOP caucuses that he'd lost by eight votes only to learn 10 days later that he'd actually won by 34 votes, the Des Moines Register reports.

Said Santorum: "I don't think there's anything for Iowa to apologize for... People say, you really got ripped off in Iowa and I say, 'No, I didn't.'"

He added that the 42-vote differential "in this case turned out to be the difference between who won and who lost" but "in most cases that would be 'who cares.'"
