Speaking at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. Friday, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum emphasized the importance of family in choosing a nominee.
"When you look at someone to determine whether they'd be the right person for public office, look at who they lay down with at night and what they believe," Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, said.
Santorum brought his wife, Karen Garver Santorum, and four of their seven children on stage after his speech.
