Newsmax is officially welcoming former CNN political commentator Rick Santorum to its ranks. Santorum left CNN about six months ago and will now join Newsmax as a political analyst making his debut covering Tuesday night’s election.

The Hill reports:

“Rick Santorum is one of the most articulate and candid political analysts in media today, and we are honored to have him leading Newsmax’s team of commentators Tuesday and beyond,” Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said.

Santroum served two terms as a Republican Senator from Pennsylvania before joining the political media landscape as an analyst and contributor.

“In just a short time, Newsmax has exponentially grown its viewership, establishing itself as a leading, unfiltered news source for hard working Americans who are looking for reporting and commentary that speaks to their traditional American values,” Santorum said. “I am looking forward to bringing my common-sense, blue-collar conservative voice to Newsmax and their viewers as we turn toward the critical 2022 midterm elections and beyond.”

Santorum was fired from CNN after he made what the network deemed offensive comments about Native Americans during a Young Americans Foundation event in May.

“We birthed a nation from nothing. I mean, there was nothing here,” Santorum said. “I mean, yes, we have Native Americans, but, candidly, there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.”

Santorum initially claimed CNN took his comments “out of context” however cancel culture worked its magic quickly.

On another site most people were calling Santorum a Rino. He was the biggest proponent of the pro-life agenda. Followed him and his comments for over 10 years.
NOT a Rino … and a real Catholic family man. Not like CINO President Stolen.
